Quotation start

Our purpose at BlackRock is to help people experience financial well-being. We work with banks, asset managers and pension funds who help their clients save for the things that matter to them, like retirement or buying a home. And we have been doing that with offices in the Nordic region since 2008.

Where we stand - and what we stand for

Can investing be good for the climate?

What if your investment not only provided returns, but could also contribute to the construction of "green" buildings and the development of sustainable agricultural solutions?

This is already a reality in practice - and quite successfully. And we continue to work, because climate risks are also investment risks.

Long-term value creation through responsible investing

A company's stance on ethics, sustainability and diversity issues can have a direct impact on its long-term success. That is why we are working together for more transparency.

If we can contribute to better returns this way - e.g. for people close to retirement - it is definitely worth standing up for.

OUR CONTRIBUTION

Contributing to a more resilient economy

We support growth and innovation on the ground

We invest client capital in the Nordic economy supporting growth, jobs and economic resilience. When we hold shares in a company on behalf of our clients, we can work with the management to prioritise social and environmental issues and advocate for sound corporate governance and sustainable business models that can drive long-term returns.
