Manage episode 347282474 series 2715815
This week I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing Carolyn Weinberg, Global Head of Product, ETF and Index Investments at Blackrock, the world's largest ETF provider. Carolyn oversees the commercialization and development of innovative products globally.
At Blackrock, Carolyn's teams build new product lines, forge strategic partnerships, and create research in support of iShares growth priorities such as fixed income and sustainability. Before joining BlackRock in 2018, Carolyn created structured derivatives solutions for corporations at Citibank, where she was Head of the North America Corporate Solutions Group. Carolyn graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College in applied mathematics and earned an MBA from Harvard Business School.
Carolyn has also been awarded a position on Barron's list of "100 Most Influential Women in U.S. Finance” three times which is an exceptional achievement.
In this interview we discuss the expansive range of ETFs at Blackrock, going into detail on some of their most innovative products to date including floating rate and interest rate hedged fixed income ETFs. We’ll discuss how to use these in your portfolio including why now is a very interesting time for Bonds.
