NET WORTH : $120.51 Billion Dollars

An American international investment firm is called BlackRock, Inc. With $9.42 trillion in assets as of June 30, 2023, it is the largest asset manager in the world. Blackrock, which has its headquarters in New York City, has 70 branches in 30 countries and 100 clients worldwide. As one of the "Big Three" index fund managers, together with State Street and The Vanguard Group, BlackRock oversees the iShares family of exchange-traded funds. Many significant financial institutions use its Aladdin software to monitor their investment portfolios, and its BlackRock Solutions subsidiary offers financial risk management services. According to revenue, BlackRock ranks 184th out of the biggest US firms on the Fortune 500 list.

BlackRock has made an effort to establish itself as a pioneer in the corporate, social, and environmental governance (ESG) space. Some have attacked it for funding businesses connected to the People's Liberation Army, the armaments sector, fossil fuels, and Chinese human rights abuses. Others have questioned BlackRock's efforts to cut back on its investments in businesses that have been linked to gun violence, climate change, and gender diversity; as a result of the company's environmental, social, and governance (ESG) policies, the states of West Virginia, Florida, and Louisiana have withdrew funds from it or refused to do business with it. The business has also come under fire for having strong links to the Federal Reserve during the COVID-19 outbreak.

    Performance fees are applied to specific BlackRock account types when performance above a pre-established threshold, as opposed to administrative costs.

    Technology Revenue

    BlackRock provides a variety of digital distribution tools, wealth management, risk management services, and investment management technology systems to customers in the asset management, bank, insurance, and pension fund industries.
