Global lower rate environment harmful to investors: BlackRock CEO

(Reuters) – Lowering interest rates around the world to boost the global economy has reached a point where it is now “quite harmful” to clients, including pension funds and insurers, BlackRock Inc <BLK.N> Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Laurence Fink said on Wednesday.

The “low rate environment is having a profound impact on how they’re going to operate,” Fink said at the Annual Bernstein Strategic Decisions Conference on Wednesday.
