BlackRock Does Not Plan To Buy Retail Brokerage

BlackRock, Inc. (NYSE:BLK) has no intention of buying a retail brokerage firm, Larry Fink, Chief Executive Officer of BlackRock, told shareholders.

BlackRock Is Reported To Buy Stake In DSP Blackrock Mutual Fund

BlackRock, Inc. (NYSE:BLK) has offered to buy out its Joint Venture partner Hemendra Kothari's stake in the Indian mutual fund business, said a person familiar with the development. BlackRock wants to acquire veteran investment banker Kothari's 60% equity holding in DSP BlackRock Investment Managers Pvt. Ltd. (DSP BlackRock Mutual Fund). BlackRock is keen on spearheading the growth of its Indian asset management business, said the person in the know. "BlackRock wants to look at different ways to grow the business which has not shown a significant rise in assets under management (AUM)," he said. In response to an Economic Times query on the matter, a BlackRock spokesperson said, "We don't comment on market speculation. We are excited about the potential of the Indian market and we work closely with our JV partner DSP BlackRock to deliver our growth strategy in India." Since negotiations between BlackRock and Kothari are still in early stages, the size of the possible deal could not be ascertained. If the deal goes through, DSP BlackRock could be valued at about 5%-6% of its assets under management, which is higher than the recent deals in the industry, said two officials with rival mutual funds. Hemendra Kothari did not comment on the matter, ET reported.
