Will BlackRock and BGI's Contrasting Cultures Mix?

News summary by MFWire's editors

One of the biggest yet unanswered questions of the BlackRock - Barclay's Global Investors merger is the compatibility of the two corporate cultures.

In Morningstar's Fund Spy column, analyst Michael Herbst wonders if the mix of BGI's passive culture will compliment BlackRock's active management history, or hinder the relationship.

"Given BlackRock's recent growth spurt and the challenges that may lie ahead, there's no guarantee that it will consistently or uniformly produce better results for mutual fund investors," commented Herbst.

Herbst does credit BlackRock management for being able to handle big deals and large growth. The article also touched on BlackRock building on BGI's trading platform, which could mean lower trading costs, and BlackRocks's new target-date fund strength.
