BlackRock (BLK) Company Overview
BlackRock (NYSE:BLK), Inc. is the world's largest publicly traded investment management and financial service firm. BlackRock's main source of revenue comes from its investment advisory fees generated by managing financial asset types including fixed income, equity, real estate, and alternative investments as well as fees generated from "BlackRock Solutions". Blackrock does not engage in proprietary trading since it may represent a potential conflict of interest with its clients.
