This excerpt taken from the BLK 10-K filed Feb 28, 2008.

Changes in the securities or other markets could lead to a decline in the value of investments that BlackRock owns.

At December 31, 2007, BlackRock held approximately $2.0 billion of investments that are reflected on its statement of financial condition. Approximately $1.1 billion of this amount is the result of consolidation of certain sponsored investment funds. BlackRock’s economic interest in these investments is the result of seed investments in its sponsored investment funds. A decline in the prices of stocks or bonds or value of real estate or other alternative investments within or outside the United States could lower the value of these investments and result in a decline of non-operating income.
