BlackRock’s purpose is to help more and more people experience financial well-being. As a global investment manager and a leading provider of financial technology, our clients – from grandparents, doctors and teachers to large institutions – turn to us for the solutions they need when planning for their most important goals. We are building a culture of innovation, curiosity and compassion, one that enables every employee to make an impact.

The Full-Time Analyst Program is a multi-year experiential journey designed to empower and support Analysts in connecting their personal passions and strengths to BlackRock’s mission, principles and purpose. The program begins with an orientation to learn about our purpose, business and strategic priorities – all while gaining insights into the day-to-day life of an Analyst at BlackRock.

Following orientation, Analysts join their team and stay connected with colleagues across the globe through ongoing training and professional development. This program offers Analysts the chance to have a lasting impact on the firm and contribute to our greater collective purpose to help more and more people experience financial well-being.

Aladdin Wealth Technology

We are a fast-growing FinTech business operating within BlackRock Solutions, and our mission is to demonstrate the power of BlackRock’s data, scale, and financial models to give financial advisors the edge they need to build better portfolios and deliver better outcomes to their end customers.

Financial Markets Advisory

The Financial Markets Advisory business advises financial institutions, regulators and government entities on their most critical and complex financial issues –from bank stress-testing, to unwinding a portfolio of assets, to crafting and executing bond purchase programs to support the economy.

Portfolio Analytics

The Portfolio Analytics group delivers analytics that provide transparency to each client's portfolio on Aladdin. We weave together Aladdin’s world-class data, financial models and technology to develop meaningful insights for investment and client teams. Analysts on our team will develop a broad understanding of finance, clients, and technology. They will learn to navigate teams across BlackRock, to explore opportunities for new ways to apply data and analytics with high impact and deploy enhanced analytics to provide actionable insights into portfolios.

Quantitative Modelling

The Quantitative Modelling group is responsible for researching, developing and implementing state-of-the-art quantitative models used to assess financial risk across fixed income, equities, derivatives, and alternative products. We use the expertise of our model researchers and our engineers, along with the collective intelligence of our partners across BlackRock and our client community, in order to deliver quantitative solutions and insights to help analyze investments and manage risk.

Risk & Quantitative Analysis

The Risk and Quantitative Analysis business provides independent oversight of BlackRock’s fiduciary and enterprise risks by crafting and delivering risk management, tailored advice and analytics. We promote BlackRock as a leader in risk management by providing top-down and bottom-up oversight to help identify investment, counterparty, operational, regulatory and technology risks. In addition to producing quantitative analysis to support BlackRock, we ensure portfolio risks are consistent across mandates, reflect current investment themes within particular strategies, and follow client-specific risk guidelines. We also work with other businesses across the organization to help portfolio managers build risk-aware portfolios and develop analytics used for risk and portfolio management using the capabilities of Aladdin.
