Equities, Earnings Await a Push From Retail Sales

BlackRock Inc., the world’s largest asset manager, said investors are turning to more-illiquid holdings such as real estate and private credit as they seek to generate returns and combat market volatility.

More than half of those responding to a survey of about 170 of BlackRock’s largest institutional clients are planning to increase allocations to private credit and real assets, the firm said Monday in a statement. Globally, investors are turning away from stocks, with about 33 percent planning to decrease their equity allocations.
