Today's episode from 14th October 2021. BlackRock - the world's biggest asset management firm- has just announced that it manages assets just shy of $10-trillion. Today we have a special feature looking at the man at the very top of this gigantic mountain, CEO Larry Fink. He built BlackRock into the most significant money manager the planet has ever seen. But should one company wield so much power? From the Financial Times, Robin Wigglesworth explores Larry Fink's journey from university dropout to CEO of the world's largest asset manager and analyses how the power of BlackRock is still growing to unprecedented levels. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
