BlackRock Group LTD Profile
BlackRock Group Ltd. is a subsidiary corporation of BlackRock Advisors that acts as an investment manager. The company is based out of the United Kingdom, with its headquarters in Edinburgh of London. It is a large advisory firm, acting as one of the many subsidiary investment advisors to the parent holding company, BlackRock Advisors. It focuses on commodity pool operating and commodity trading advising, taking its revenue from the percentage of assets under management as well as fixed fees and performance based fees. As a company operating under the BlackRock umbrella, BlackRock Group can access all of the available resources, and also provide these resources to its own subsidiaries. Some of the more important and significant of these resources include its globally coordinated platform and variety of technology oriented research. The subsidiaries of BlackRock Group manage separate client focused portfolios, also helping them launch mutual funds. By operating through its subsidiaries, the firm also invests in public equity and fixed income markets across the globe with a regional focus. The firm works with other BlackRock subsidiaries, such as BlackRock Investment Management (UK), located in the United Kingdom as well, forming a substantial presence within the country. Because there is a deal of restructuring and movement within the company subsidiaries and the fact that BlackRock Group actually acts as a further subsidiary holder for its parent BlackRock Advisors Holdings, it is not clear who the leading executive figures within the company are. BlackRock group has a current market value of $185 billion, dividing its sectors up with a main focus on finance and information technology. It also has sector focuses in services, energy, consumer, and utilities, among others, listed in order of decreasing emphasis. Its market value has increased dramatically in the recent two years, jumping up $50 billion from its $135 billion evaluation back in 2013.
