About us

BlackRock was founded 25 years ago by eight entrepreneurs who wanted to start a very different company. One that combined the best of a financial leader and a technology pioneer. And one that focused many diverse views on a singular purpose: making a difference in the lives of the parents and grandparents, the doctors and teachers who entrust us with their money—and their futures—every day.

Today, we’ve become the world’s largest investment manager—with over $4 trillion under management and many of the largest companies and governments around the globe turning to us with their biggest financial challenges. At the heart of BlackRock is a world-class technology system called Aladdin. It is an unmatched operating platform—and central nervous system—that unites all the information, people and technology needed to manage money in real time and at every step in the investment process. Unlike other financial firms, technology at BlackRock is a profit center, not a support function, and stands on its own as a fast-growing business.

Our technology is relied upon by the World’s biggest companies and government turn to BlackRock, and the insights only Aladdin can uncover to help them run their businesses and address their most important challenges

  • 19,000 users worldwide including Chief Technology officers, Chief Risk offices, Portfolio managers and traders
