IG and BlackRock

We’ve always been committed to making the financial markets more accessible, working at the forefront of technology to bring you better ways to invest. By partnering with world-leading asset manager BlackRock,1 we can offer you simple, transparent and affordable investment opportunities.

Your capital is at risk

The value of investments can fall as well as rise, and you may get back less than you invested. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

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.
