Fortune Magazine has published an interesting read on Larry Fink and the history of BlackRock. BlackRock is now the world's largest manager of asset with $4.3 trillion under management. In 2013 Fortune published a list of the world's 50 Most Admired Companies, five among them were 25 years old or less. Four were from tech land: Amazon, eBay, Facebook, Google. The oddball in this party of five was BlackRock, formed in 1988 by Fink and seven partners. The article goes into the path the company has followed as well as the work habits of Larry Fink. An interesting read if you have a little time to spare. (VIEW LINK)
