BlackRock’s global alternative platform provides investors with a wide set of accessible alternative strategies.

Capital at risk. All financial investments involve an element of risk. Therefore, the value of your investment and the income from it will vary and your initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed. 

Long/short

Long/short investment strategies take long and short positions in equity or fixed income markets. They seek to generate, but cannot guarantee, returns regardless of the general direction of the market.

Factor Driven

Focus on underlying factors such as value (inexpensive stocks), momentum (trending stocks) and quality (financially healthy stocks) with the aim to generate, but cannot guarantee, returns regardless of the general direction of the market.

Event driven

Event driven strategies seek to take advantage of corporate events (such as mergers and acquisitions) that may be unrelated to the broader market with the aim to generate, but cannot guarantee, returns regardless of the general direction of the market.

Multi-strategies

Offer broad exposure to multiple absolute return strategies. Investors in these strategies should understand that they are not guaranteed to produce a positive return and as an absolute return product, performance may not move in line with general stock market trends.
