BlackRock, the world’s largest asset management firm, said Monday that second-quarter earnings had risen 9 percent as investors continued to pour money into the company’s expanding fleet of exchange-traded funds.BlackRock now manages $1.5 trillion in exchange-traded funds, passive investment vehicles that track a wide variety of indexes and investment strategies.[...] as BlackRock cements its place as the industry leader in terms of ETFs — with Vanguard entrenched in second place — Fink will remain under pressure to ensure that its other activities, from managing bonds to its struggling stock-picking division, keep pace with the surging passive business.More than ever, Fink is positioning BlackRock to focus on such systematic investment strategies as basic index funds, ETFs and blended strategies like smart beta and factors that target investment themes like momentum and low volatility.

- A dose of Dr. Seuss fired up Chris Bently and Camille Crowder
By Carolyne Zinko - Thursday May 28, 2015
If true love is the stuff of fairy tales, could the same be true of nursery rhymes?Crowder was working at the gallery when Bently, a real estate and organic farming entrepreneur, walked in.Bently went to the gallery for a mental break, but his mind soon became flooded with something else:A few times a week, they talked about the artwork on display — the surrealist works of Theodor Seuss Geisel.Bently traveled between the Bay Area, Tahoe and Nevada, for his work with Bently Enterprises, which oversees a property management firm, a luxury apartment building, the Bently Reserve, an organic ranch and a distillery.When together, they chatted about life, aspirations and their deepest fears, and it was “wonderful,” Bently said.Bently put Crowder in charge of development at his eponymous charitable foundation, which supports nonprofits in sustainability, creativity and animal rights.The two also faced challenges, including the deaths of Bently’s former wife and his father.The pair’s horizons expanded with world travels to Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Greece, London and Scotland.While in Edinburgh last August, where they were touring distilleries, Bently proposed with a ring of his own design, made by Shreve & Co. He considered many spots, but popped the question after popping the cork on a bottle of bubbly one night in their hotel room.Bently and Crowder, who will wed at a castle in Scotland on June 24, hosted an engagement party for 300 friends April 11 at the Bently Reserve in San Francisco.The “gypsy masquerade” theme played to their travels, they said, as well as the love that Bently, a former musician, has for the creativity of the Burning Man festival in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, which he frequently attends.Exotic performers, musicians and DJs added flair, but there is no mystery to their affinity.Carolyne Zinko is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.
