Robert’s Story
MAJOR GO-GETTER
Starting a company at 16 in his native Berlin, Robert’s entrepreneurial adventures took him across the world, eventually to Hong Kong—gaining business degrees along the way. His youth was spent trading penny stocks, which paved the way for his career in finance. After starting off as a Fixed Income analyst in Taiwan, Robert turned down offers from other firms to join the team that defines BlackRock's business strategy and to work in an inclusive, LGBTQ-friendly culture.
