BlackRock is the wealthiest and most influential investment management firm on Wall Street, with more than $10 trillion in assets under its stewardship. Its influence, however, does not end in the corporate and financial realms. In fact, for years, the Larry Fink-led behemoth has cultivated political alliances and hired individuals with high-level government connections while it has developed unprecedented and highly lucrative strategic partnerships with the U.S. Federal Reserve.
Yet, upon a thorough investigation of White House visitor logs and other relevant documents, it appears BlackRock’s influence runs deeper than ever. Our most important finding reveals that one of BlackRock’s top executives not only has deep personal relationships with Biden administration staff, but has himself been a frequent visitor, meeting repeatedly with staff from the Office of Cabinet Affairs and the National Security Council.
