BlackRock’s purpose is to help more and more people experience financial well-being. As a fiduciary to investors and a leading provider of financial technology, we help millions of people build savings that serve them throughout their lives by making investing easier and more affordable.
We understand the challenges that public pensions face. With interest rates down and market volatility up, many plans are struggling to achieve their long-term target rates of return while maintaining sufficient liquidity to meet annual outflows.
Our dedicated public pensions team leverages the depth and breadth of BlackRock to deliver investment solutions that are aligned with plan priorities. From re-thinking portfolio construction to blending strategic and tactical allocation to optimizing risk and return in private markets, our public pension clients use BlackRock’s full spectrum of public and private markets strategies to help reach their goals.

Public pensions, post-pandemic

BlackRock's Client Insight Unit analyzed data of more than 85 U.S. public pensions to understand the impact of the pandemic downturn and other extreme market events. We found that funding ratios have been significantly impaired, despite strong investment performance pointing to the importance of downside risk mitigation and portfolio resilience.
