BlackRock accidentally exposes confidential data on advisers using popular iShares ETFs: Bloomberg

BlackRock Inc. , the world’s largest asset manager, inadvertently posted confidential information about thousands of financial adviser clients on its site, Bloomberg News reported late Friday, citing a glimpse of the released data before it was removed by the investment firm. The data were linked on one of the company’s web pages dedicated to its iShares exchange-traded funds. The documents included names and email addresses of financial advisers who buy BlackRock’s ETFs on behalf of customers and appeared to show the assets under management each adviser had in the firm’s iShares ETFs, Bloomberg reported. The links were dated Dec. 5, 2018, but it’s unclear how long they were public. BlackRock oversees assets of almost $6 trillion and is the world’s largest issuer of ETFs.
