Save to shortlist Saved to shortlist Apply now

Multi-Asset investing is uniquely qualified to help our investors achieve their investment outcomes by looking across multiple sources of return and ensuring portfolios are responsive to changes in market conditions.

These sources of return can include:

  • The combination of fundamental & systematic research insights
  • Strategic and tactical asset allocation
  • Security selection
  • Macro and style factors
  • Thematic views.

This ability to leverage multiple sources of return is what allows multi-asset to increase the probability of success and provide more resiliency across market cycles.

Life at BlackRock

Wonder what it’s really like to work at BlackRock? Our employees from offices all over the world share their thoughts on what makes our culture so special and unlike any other financial services firm – and what’s kept them here.

Our team is known for

  • Blending fundamental and systematic research techniques to be able to broaden our perspective and analyse the wealth of information at our disposal
  • Looking to index, factor, and alpha building blocks in our quest for optimal portfolios
  • Analysing portfolios through a factor lens to better understand portfolio exposures that capital allocations alone cannot properly identify
  • Developing thematic investment views and only afterwards seek to express those views across our portfolios, often across multiple dimensions and asset classes
  • Looking beyond conventional asset classes to deliver an outcome in a more consistent and risk aware manner.
