About BlackRock

NARRATOR: Since our founding over 30 years ago, BlackRock has approached change with courage, humility, and a goal of staying ahead of our clients' needs. We've always recognized our great responsibility to our clients and to the communities we serve around the world.

We help millions of people invest to build savings that serve them throughout their lives. We make investing easier and more affordable. We advance sustainable investing. And we contribute to a more inclusive and resilient economy that benefits more people.

To meet the needs of our clients over the long term, we're continuing to evolve, invest, and innovate. We are challenging ourselves and the industry by asking big questions.

Like how can we contribute to an effective transition to a net zero economy? How can we bring the voices of individual shareholders to the companies they invest in? And how can we help more people benefit from the long-term growth of capital markets?

BlackRock is investing for the future so we can better serve our clients, inspire our employees, and support our communities. This is how we remain true to our purpose of helping more and more people experience financial well-being.

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.
