Alternative Investments

Global economies are more connected than ever, making it difficult to rely solely on buying stocks and bonds to build a diversified portfolio. Because alternatives tend to behave differently than stocks and bonds, adding them to your portfolio can offer scope for broader diversification and the potential to reduce risk and enhance returns.

At BlackRock, our longstanding experience in alternative investing and breadth of solutions can help you meet your desired goals.  While alternatives don’t eliminate risk from a portfolio, they can offer an efficient way to help reduce the effects of particular risks and pinpoint specific outcomes.
