With Aladdin®, BlackRock Solutions is unique in its ability to provide a fully integrated enterprise investment solution. Aladdin combines sophisticated risk analytics with portfolio management, trading and operations tools to support true straight-through processing. As portfolio managers implement investment strategies, analytics are calculated, trades are captured and allocated electronically, compliance is checked automatically, and transactions are confirmed. Trade information is then seamlessly routed to custodian banks and accounting agents via industry mechanisms such as SWIFT. The result is a paperless, exception-based investment management process utilizing the latest technology and industry standards to process significant amounts of information in a highly efficient, highly controlled manner.
As a comprehensive platform, Aladdin provides a centralized database for maintaining financial information including positions, transactions, prices, security data and analytics. This approach is designed to eliminate redundant data input, enhance data integrity and significantly reduce operational risk while simultaneously increasing operating leverage and consistency.
Aladdin is delivered as a managed service. BlackRock Solutions is responsible for implementing the system and keeping it operating smoothly. As Aladdin evolves in response to developments in the capital markets and changes in business processes, clients are seamlessly provided with continual access to new system functionality.
