Buy-Side Technology Awards 2021 Winner's Interview: BlackRock (front-office platform)

BlackRock won the best integrated front-office platform category in the 2021 BST Awards, thanks to its Aladdin platform.

Victor Anderson chats to Tarek Chouman, global head of business development at BlackRock, about his firm’s win in the best integrated front-office platform category in the recent BST Awards. In this interview they discuss: 

  • What separates Aladdin from other integrated front-office platforms on the market in a category traditionally dominated by a small number of large, well-established players. 
  • The thinking behind BlackRock’s integration of eFront and Climate Analytics into the Aladdin platform over the course of the last year. 
  • The buy side’s most pressing issues right now from a front-office perspective, and how Aladdin is addressing those issues.
  • What the buy side can expect from the Aladdin platform over the course of the next 12 months in terms of new features and functionality.
