ABOUT US

Actually, it has never been about us.

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?
BlackRock.
Ask Bigger Questions

As an asset manager focused on the long-term, we will continue to ask bigger questions at the intersection of investing and society.

About how to push forward without leaving people behind. About building bridges between society and shareholders, the planet and profits, in service of the biggest question of them all.

Our purpose is to help more and more people experience financial well-being. Together with our clients, we’re contributing to a more equitable and resilient world – today and for generations to come.

We are committed to advancing... 

Financial well-being:
We help millions of people invest to build savings that serve them throughout their lives. As it becomes harder to save for goals like retirement, how can we help more people invest for their future?

When I was young I wasn’t sure at first what might I do in this big world.

I grew up with the goal of pursuing a career in business but also giving back to the community.

I wanted to enter a company that actually cares about what’s going on.

BlackRock’s given me the opportunity to combine my personal and professional passions.

What we are doing that is something impacting our society.

Our aim is to help empower people with our savings.

We are offering hiring people that have had a diverse backgrounds.

As a minority get crucial to have a firm that is diverse.

Black Rock has given me opportunity, I feel like I can belong in finance.

I feel that I’m doing something special.

I feel I have the power to bring in the change that I want.

At BlackRock, we work with our own values in everything that we do today.
