BlackRock Balanced Capital has a seasoned manager at the helm and disciplined underlying funds, and it follows a sophisticated process. Yet this strategy is somewhat limited by its U.S. focus, which narrows its investment universe relative to peers and inhibits the team from fully expressing its tactical views; the team’s other strategies have a global focus that allows for a wider breadth of ideas. Its three cheapest share classes maintain a Morningstar Analyst Rating of Bronze, while the two more expensive share classes have been downgraded to Neutral.
