Investment Capabilities

Equity investing at BlackRock

Market returns are not always enough to meet lifetime financial goals, which is why we are tireless in our pursuit of something more. The mission of our equities team is to deliver consistent, risk-managed, market-beating results for our clients over the long term.

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

Megatrends and thematic investing

Our thematic investing strategies focus on long-term trends rather than specific companies or sectors, enabling investors to identify future drivers of return. Five megatrends shape the core of our thematic investing philosophy: rapid urbanisation, climate change and resource scarcity, shifting economic power and demographic and social change – all driven by technological breakthrough.

Index investing and exchange traded funds (ETFs)

ETFs and index funds have profoundly changed the way investors build and manage portfolios. Indexing can help reduce governance burdens and allow more time to focus on finding true alpha in select areas of the portfolio. It also gives you more control over risk and increases cost transparency for an improved understanding of return drivers.

We believe that better investment outcomes are achieved through balancing the certainty of cost with the uncertainty of risk and return – and finding a consistent experience in a changing world.
