BlackRock Future Forum

Looking forward from the future

The global pandemic has many of us wondering what comes next - for the economy, healthcare, tech and for investing. Does globalism have a future? Will sustainable investing endure? At the recent BlackRock Future Forum, we put these questions and more to the industry and investment experts from BlackRock and beyond. Discover what they shared.

Overview of the Future Forum

While the global health pandemic has affected our ability to gather in person, it hasn’t impacted our desire to connect with our institutional clients to share insights on the topics that are influencing markets and impacting society, and to foster debate on the issues that matter most.

The event brought together BlackRock leaders including CEO Larry Fink, President Rob Kapito and Chairman Barbara Novick; outside experts including former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, Mayo Clinic CEO Gianrico Farrugia and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella; and senior BlackRock investors across asset classes.

Over the course of the event, investors joined us for a series of conversations on topics ranging from the future of globalism, to healthcare in the age of the coronavirus, to the role of corporate purpose. And some of our leading investors shared their insights on how these issues are affecting the investment landscape. 

We hope you find the insights illuminating as you navigate the uncertain road ahead, and we look forward to continuing the conversation, both virtually and — when conditions permit — in person, once again.
