Investment Expertise, Simply Delivered.

We want to help you achieve your investment goals and believe that the best way to do that is to offer a selection of actively managed multi-asset portfolios.

Building our portfolios with iShares ETFs means that investors can gain the potential benefits of asset allocation with underlying investments that closely follow an index.

Our model portfolios are constructed to optimally balance long–term returns, risks, and costs as per the objective of the four risk profiles. As a result, each portfolio has a unique objective, offering exposures to various asset classes, industry sectors, style factors, currencies, and geographies.

Reviews and Rebalancing

Our model portfolios are constructed and supported by a global team of investment strategists and monitored by BlackRock’s sophisticated risk-management engine, Aladdin – the same technology used by some of the most sophisticated investors and institutions around the world.

The portfolio asset allocations are reviewed regularly and rebalanced where appropriate, as per the objective of each model. This is to ensure that the portfolios remain optimally balanced for risk, return, and cost.

*As of June 30, 2021, the firm managed approximately USD$9.5 trillion in assets on behalf of investors worldwide.
