Private equity

Evolution and innovation

Following two decades of strong growth, private equity now presents a large collection of strategy offerings and multiple ways to invest. BlackRock has been a major contributor to this evolution, from our role as an early mover in co-investments to our early adoption of ESG1 policies to our introduction of an innovative, client-aligned direct strategy.
