    Q: How is technology helping BlackRock manage risk?

    The investment world has evolved to where markets have become more efficient in many ways. Social and other media more broadly creates an incredible flow of information. To regularly out-pick the market based on one specific piece of information is impossible. So what should you do? Research, research, research. And analyze. And then allocate your portfolio in a way that ensures you’ve got relative value decisions all around the world, all around the capital stack, and around different asset classes. Then do it over and over again.

    It’s a way of tilting the odds in your favor. By repeating that process a million times over, you’re creating a dynamic where you’re not just diversifying to reduce risk, but you’re diversifying in a way that you’ve got a lot of relative value calls that make sense. When you do it over and over, the odds are working for you on a regular basis.
