Our Guiding Principles
Our clients are the world’s governments, institutions and financial advisers. To help them achieve their financial goals we live our guiding principles each and every day:
Start with Rigor
We take a highly disciplined and risk-aware approach built on exhaustive research, careful analysis and market-tested experience to meet client needs. Rigor is behind every decision we make.
Build from Breadth
Today’s investment problems demand a breadth of capabilities. We build from a universe of active and index strategies to create cost effective solutions.
Invest as Stewards
We help our portfolio companies see that what is fair for people and sustainable for the planet can deliver long-term performance. As fiduciaries, we believe good stewardship is good investing.
Invent the Future
We created the first ETF in the US and are pioneers in index, active, and ESG investing. Using data, insights and investment skill, we are always inventing new ways to invest.
Meet Fearless Girl
Fearless Girl ignited a global conversation about the power of women in leadership and inspired companies around the world to add women to their boards.
Our stewardship program is designed to have an impact. Through strong engagement, voting and thought leadership, we have seen companies respond to our calls to action to enhance diversity at the board level and improve disclosure on their sustainability practices.
A growing body of research shows that companies committed to diversity and inclusion perform better over the long term. As an investment manager entrusted with $3.59 trillion* and as an employer of 2,700 talented people across the globe, we understand the special responsibility we have to our clients and employees to support diversity at every level of our business.
