Alternative Asset Managers Face Fewer Headwinds for Time Being; Blackstone Remains Our Top Pick

Greggory Warren, CFA Sector Strategist

Analyst Note

| Greggory Warren, CFA |

The stand-alone publicly traded alternative asset managers we cover—narrow-moat-rated Blackstone, KKR & Company, and The Carlyle Group—have enjoyed something of a "golden era of growth" during the past decade as institutional and high-net-worth investors have increased their allocation to alternatives in the pursuit of returns that were less correlated to equity and credit markets and yields that were better than what they could get in a fixed-income market hamstrung by historically low interest rates.

Company Profile BLK

Business Description

BlackRock is the largest asset manager in the world, with $8.487 trillion in AUM at the end of June 2022. Product mix is fairly diverse, with 51% of the firm's managed assets in equity strategies, 29% in fixed income, 8% in multi-asset class, 9% in money market funds, and 3% in alternatives. Passive strategies account for around two thirds of long-term AUM, with the company's iShares ETF platform maintaining a leading market share domestically and on a global basis. Product distribution is weighted more toward institutional clients, which by our calculations account for around 80% of AUM. BlackRock is also geographically diverse, with clients in more than 100 countries and more than one third of managed assets coming from investors domiciled outside the U.S. and Canada.
