2017 Asset Management & Servicing Winners


Equities (Including alternative equity beta)

BlackRock Winner
BlackRock’s Equity solutions are applauded for their combination of innovation and risk management. Asset owners appreciate the firm’s global perspective and cutting-edge intellectual capital, while global presence allows the firm to harness local expertise and insight.

The firm’s scale and scope were key in its appeal. The scale leads to cost-effectiveness. Despite its size, the firm remains nimble and committed to fast-moving, autonomous teams. Embracing change has been central to the success of BlackRock.

“At the heart of BlackRock is a culture that embraces change and turns it into opportunity,” Laurence D. Fink, chairman and CEO, said earlier in the year. “We are constantly anticipating how macro trends will reshape both our industry and our clients’ needs; we then pivot accordingly. That unwavering commitment to embracing change for the benefit of our clients has resulted in an almost continuous review of BlackRock’s product platform.”
