Cash and liquidity solutions

BlackRock considers cash management a unique investment discipline requiring a distinct skill set for effective management. While our investment strategy is conservative by nature, we strive to deliver competitive, consistent returns over time.

Money market strategies

Our liquidity strategies are designed to meet the cash management needs of institutional investors. They aim to satisfy the most conservative investment policies by consistently focusing on high-quality investments and providing same-day liquidity with competitive yields.

Government money market strategies invest in government securities or repurchase agreements that are collateralized by government securities.
Short-term credit
In addition to the government strategy these invest in securities issued by corporations, banks and other non-government entities.
Environmentally Aware
Following a similar strategy to the short-term credit, this fund range applies more environmental considerations and commitments.
Ultra-Short Bond
With a minimum recommended investment horizon of three months, these strategies offer potential for yield uplift whilst focusing on low volatility of capital and liquidity.

A Money Market Fund (MMF) is not a guaranteed investment vehicle. An investment in MMFs is different from an investment in deposits; the principal invested in an MMF is capable of fluctuation and the risk of loss of the principal is to be borne by the investor. The MMF does not rely on external support for guaranteeing the liquidity of the MMF or stabilising the NAV per share. Further information about the funds, including the methods used by the MMF to value the assets of the MMF and calculate the NAV, are available at

If a pooled fund solution does not meet your investment needs, please contact us to explore the potential for a bespoke separate account solution.

Exchange traded funds (ETFs)

When putting cash to work, investors should balance their needs for preservation of capital, income and liquidity. With attractive yields available in short-term bond markets, investors may consider using ETFs to add income and keep pace with inflation.

0-1 year Government bond ETF strategy
Exposure to government bonds with remaining maturities less than or equal to one year.
1-3-year government bond ETF strategy
Exposure to government bonds with remaining maturities less than or equal to three years.
Ultra-short maturity corporate bond ETF strategy
Exposure that seeks to provide income by investing in a broad range of ultra-short maturity investment grade corporate bonds.
Short maturity corporate bonds ETF strategy
Exposure that seeks to provide income by investing in a broad range of short maturity investment grade corporate bonds.
Floating-rate bond ETF strategy
Exposure to investment grade corporate floating rate bonds, whose interest payments adjust to reflect changes in interest rates.

Mutual funds

BlackRock’s Short Duration strategies employ a fundamental, diversified, and relative-value approach focused solely on the front end of the yield curve.

Actively managed portfolio of bonds
Active management can help investors navigate volatility, seeking to identify the 'winners' while avoiding exposure to potential 'losers' of the current market environment.
Yield advantage
Aim to maintain a yield advantage over the index benchmark.
Relative value
A diversified relative value approach, rather than structural beta tilts, aim to add active performance through the market cycle, delivering attractive risk-adjusted returns.
Unconstrained solutions to complement traditional exposures
BlackRock’s unconstrained fixed income funds can flexibly manage duration, navigating periods of rising and falling interest rates to protect total returns.

Separately managed accounts

Unlike commingled mutual funds, separately managed accounts are segregated mandates comprised solely of one client’s assets. The investment strategy of the account is driven by the specific objectives and risk tolerance of the account owner, often dictated by their investment guidelines.
