Larry Fink's 2022 letter to CEOs

For over a decade, Larry has been writing to CEOs highlighting themes that are vital to creating long-term value for our clients. The pandemic has accelerated the importance of these themes, raising new questions for how companies should evolve as the world around us changes.

Every great idea,
Every breakthrough,
Started with a question
Someone asked the why
Poked holes in the way things are,
To see what they could become.
And right now, the world is facing some big questions.
About how to push forward without leaving people behind.
How to break with the past and create a better future.
So on behalf of more and more people,
BlackRock is asking bigger questions.
Bolder questions.
Questions that challenge convention
And give rise to new thinking.
Questions like:
How can valuing workers more lead to greater company value?
How can the economy go green, without putting communities in the red?
Because the bigger questions we ask, the bigger actions we can take.
Helping us tackle the biggest question of them all:
How can we all prosper?
