Larry Fink on the power of capitalism
For more than a decade, BlackRock’s Chairman and CEO, Larry Fink, has written letters to CEOs of public companies around the world on behalf of our clients. In those letters, he has highlighted major issues that can affect corporate performance and investment returns including the importance of capital management, long-term strategy, corporate purpose, and navigating the impact of climate change.
In this episode, Larry talks about this year’s letter and how the pandemic has turbocharged an evolution in the operating environment for virtually every company, how capitalism is changing, and what it all means for CEOs.
