While some of BlackRock's investment segments might appear too small, as a percentage of total assets under management, to meet reporting thresholds within the PRI framework, the absolute assets represent significant ESG integration activitiy conducted on behalf of asset owners. For example, our private equity and real assets (including real estate and infrastructure) businesses have developed robust ESG integration approaches. In addition, BlackRock integrates ESG considerations into long positions in hedge funds and multi-asset portfolios--which include fixed income and equity allocations where stewardship activities play a role--and our advisory business to assist clients with external manager selection and asset allocation decisions.

It is not possible within the framework to provide an adequate level of detail, so AUM figures throughout should be considered only for illustrative purposes and should not be relied on as final or factual.
