While the AUM of the world's largest money manager were up 13.2% from the prior quarter and up 7% from the same quarter a year earlier, the firm has not regained enough to surpass its all-time high of $7.43 trillion as of Dec. 31.
AUM as of March 31 was $6.47 trillion.
During an earnings call with analysts, Gary S. Shedlin, senior managing director and chief financial officer, attributed much of the growth in the quarter to the $100.2 billion of net inflows from all strategies, including long term, cash and advisory assets.
Mr. Shedlin said the quarterly net inflows represented 6% annualized organic growth and 10% organic base fee growth.
He said AUM growth in the quarter ended June 30 was boosted by record inflows to active equity ($8 billion) and fixed-income ETFs ($57 billion) as well as strong net inflows ($3 billion) into illiquid alternative investments.
During his remarks to analysts on the call, Laurence D. Fink, BlackRock chairman and CEO, drew attention to the fact that the more than 60 new investors, including pension funds, insurers and money managers, were among investors who drove the strong net inflow into fixed income ETFs in the second quarter.
By comparison, BlackRock's total net inflow in the quarter ended March 31 was $35 billion. For the second quarter of 2019, the firm saw net inflows of $151 billion, BlackRock's earnings reports showed.

Long-term strategies (excluding cash funds and advisory assets) had net inflow totaling $62.2 billion in the quarter ended June 30, BlackRock's earnings report said.
Flows by asset class were led by fixed-income strategies, which attracted $60.3 billion of net inflow, followed by alternative investments, with a net inflow of $11.1 billion.
