About Us

BlackRock is a global investment firm, trusted to manage more assets than any other. Our clients are companies, governments, foundations, and millions of individuals saving for retirement, their children’s educations, and a better life. We are passionate about providing products and services that can help them build a strong financial future. Our employees from around the globe are students of the market and students of technology, respectfully anti-bureaucratic, and innovative at the core.

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 almost 30 years later, BlackRock is still founder-led. Despite having grown to 13,000+ employees and becoming the largest asset manager in the world, 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.
