Our partnership with BlackRock
We are responsible for constructing and managing your IG Smart Portfolio. Our decisions are based on asset allocation insights from BlackRock, which enable us to provide institutional-quality portfolios that cater to five distinct risk profiles.
The asset allocation insights from BlackRock are supported by Aladdin, BlackRock’s proprietary portfolio risk management platform. Aladdin is licensed by more than 180 external organisations, including some of the world’s largest financial institutions, and is used to analyse over $17 trillion of assets (as of June 2016).
By combining BlackRock’s asset allocation insights with our cutting-edge technology and expert customer service, IG Smart Portfolios can provide a better investment solution.
