Blackrock picks up Helix

Not sure what this says, but I bet Kevin Donlon (the CMBS one, not the Father one) is planning a real nice vacation.

Blackrock bought Helix. Blackrock currently sells a product to institutional investors that I assumed competed with Helix, but I'm not really familiar with both companies in that regard - at least not enough to fully tease out what the purchase means. I'm leaning towards either "Blackrock's CMBS analytics suck" or "Helix's analytics are that awesome".
