Continuing a blitz of new fund and ETF activity over the past few weeks, BlackRock has filed to launch four more funds, including two multi-asset funds and two short-term bond funds, according to a report by Morningstar.

The first multi-asset fund, BlackRock Real Return fund, will seek to establish an inflation-hedge strategy with investments in Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS), equities, REITs, commodity-related companies, master limited partnerships, and investment-grade and junk bonds. The fund will be managed by Philip Green, Michael Fredericks, Lutz-Peter Wilke and Justin Christofel.
