Looked at from three different angles, a single asset management giant is the fund firm that financial advisors think of first when they want portfolio construction help.
FAs point to BlackRock
as the number one fund firm on three lists: 1) "Top Fund Managers for Overall Portfolio Construction Advice"; 2) "Top Portfolio Construction Specialists from Whom Advisors Received Advice"; 3) "Top Investment Managers for Portfolio Construction." The Fuse Research Network
team put those lists and more in the recently released "Portfolio Construction: The Advisor View" edition of their Advisor Trend Monitor
series. The report draws on an FA survey conducted by Fuse and WealthManagement.com
"Once again, BlackRock led the pack with a considerable lead," the Fuse team writes.

(second on 1, tied for fourth on 2, and second on 3); J.P. Morgan
