BlackRock is a global asset manager. We help investors build better financial futures. As a fiduciary to investors and a leading provider of financial technology, our clients turn to us for the solutions they need when planning for their most important goals. Our founding mission was to establish a firm that thinks differently about managing investment risks to best serve our clients, and this is still at our core today.
BlackRock was founded in 1988 by eight people in a single room in New York City, who believed they could build a better asset management firm. Fast-forward more than 30 years later, BlackRock is still founder-led. Despite having grown to over 16,000 employees, we haven’t lost our entrepreneurial, start-up spirit. As we continuously evolve and adapt, technology plays an increasingly important role in how we conduct our business and serve our clients.
