BlackRock at more than 5% of the votes

The asset manager Blackrock has not been able to convert a veritable flood of customer inflows into higher profits. The result fell significantly in the second quarter and was worse than expected by analysts.

Blackrock reported net inflows of $151 billion for the period from April to June, compared to $20 billion a year earlier. The assets under management increased by 8.6 percent to 6.8 trillion dollars.

The revenues nevertheless decreased by 2 percent to 3.52 billion and were slightly below expectations. The net profit fell to $1 billion from 1.1 billion a year earlier.
