BlackRock has reported a net income of $1.41bn for the third quarter of 2022, a decline of almost 16% compared with $1.68bn a year ago.

For the quarter ended 30 September 2022, the company’s assets under management (AUM) dropped 16% to $7.96 trillion due to uncertainties in global equity and bond markets.

The firm’s revenue dropped 15% to $4.31bn in the third quarter.

The asset manager’s overall quarterly net inflows remained strong with $65bn of long-term net inflows. The firm’s year-to-date inflows stood at $248bn.

The inflow is fuelled by momentum from exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and ‘significant outsourcing mandates,’ the firm said.

BlackRock’s net flows totalled $17bn in the Q3, which was due to outflows from various BlackRock offerings, such as cash management and advisory AUM.
