Larry Fink at BlackRock: Linking Purpose to Profit
In 2014, Larry Fink started writing letters to the leaders of some of the largest publicly listed companies, urging them to consider the importance of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues. Fink is the chairman and CEO of BlackRock, one of the largest asset management houses in the world. The firm’s success was rooted in its cost-effective, passive investment products that rely more on tracking indices and funds. But Fink wanted his firm to engage with the companies in which they invest and hold them accountable for their social and environmental impacts. What role should investors play in urging business leaders to take environmental, social, and governance issues more seriously and enforcing compliance? Harvard Business School professor George Serafeim discusses the merits of Fink’s approach, the importance of corporate investments in ESG themes, and how to lead a company driven by purpose and profit in his case, “BlackRock: Linking Purpose to Profit,” and his new book Purpose and Profit: How Business Can Lift Up The World.

How to Make Venture Capital Accessible for Black Founders: An Entrepreneur’s Dilemma
In May of 2021, Kevin D. Johnson had just graduated from a rigorous Executive MBA program, and he needed to decide on his next career move. Johnson was the founder and CEO of a successful media company, but his career goals had shifted during business school. He wanted to use his talents to help other BIPOC entrepreneurs access capital and provide opportunities to create intergenerational wealth. Johnson evaluated his four options: work full-time at an online platform dedicated to connecting Black founders with funding, join a BIPOC-focused venture capital ("VC") firm, pursue a job at an established VC firm, or continue scaling his media company. Harvard Business School senior lecturer Jo Tango and Johnson discuss which option he should choose in the case, “Kevin D.

None of us knows for certain what the future will hold, but we all have a responsibility to be thinking about what’s likely to happen, and to prepare for it. In the finance function, that means working now to get the right people and technology in place to take advantage of the inevitable disruption ahead. That’s not likely to happen without a clear vision and strategy for finance in a digital world. Now is the time to step back and make sure your roadmap to that future is clear.
With that in mind, below are eight predictions for finance in 2025, based on what finance leaders are doing and the technology available today. Once you’ve taken a glance through the predictions, consider:
- Downloading the full “ Finance 2025 ” report to understand how each of these trends impacts finance work, finance workforce, and finance workplace and the steps executives can begin to take today.
- Exploring our other Crunch time reports on topics including enterprise service delivery, data management strategy, ERP solutions, finance talent, cloud, forecasting, blockchain, and many more.
The methodology for generating our predictions is straightforward. We look carefully at what finance leaders are doing and at the technology that’s available, and then we ask these questions: What would be possible if we combined different technologies to reimagine the future? How would the work of finance get done and who would do it? How could finance contribute even more to the success of the company?
When Sumerian merchants first recorded livestock sales on clay tablets, finance technology was born. Five thousand years later, technology has evolved into a new class of digital tools reshaping every aspect of the business. No matter what future you see for your finance organization, one thing is clear: That future is now. If you’re going to compete in the digital world, your organization needs to forecast and manage more effectively and become more efficient.
The key? FinVENTA , an integrated technology platform that leverages a modern digital finance architecture and disruptive technologies to showcase the art of the possible across operational, business and specialized finance for deeper, more accurate insights that speed time to outcome.

Graphic Packaging: Project Cowboy (A)
In July 2019, Graphic Packaging CEO Michael Doss was proposing a $600 million investment in a new machine to produce coated recycled board (CRB), a type of paper packaging used for consumer products (cups, cereal boxes, beverage boxes, etc.) that utilized recycled paper as an input. Graphic Packaging was an integrated producer of paperboard packaging for consumer products and the market leader in CRB. What made this decision difficult was that for the past 30 years, plastic packaging had been replacing paper packaging because of cost and ease of manufacturing. Yet a growing interest in environmental sustainability among paperboard manufacturers, consumer goods companies (immediate customers), and consumers (end users) was creating the possibility of a transition from plastics back to paper-based products. If these trends actually materialized, there would be greater demand for CRB mills that could use recycled inputs and create recyclable products. Was this the right time for a capacity neutral investment (GPK planned to shut older plants when the new one came online) particularly when the sustainability trends were still unclear. By closing older, less efficient mills in favor of a newer, larger, and more efficient machine, GPK could save $100 million per year in costs. In short, this decision had a clear economic benefit as long as sustainability trends continued, competitors did not add new or more efficient capacity, and GPK actually removed existing capacity once the new machine was operational.

Disruption and Credit Markets
We show that over the past half century innovative disruptions were central to understanding corporate defaults. In a given year, industries experiencing abnormally high VC or IPO activity subsequently see higher default rates, higher segment exits by conglomerates, and higher yields on bonds issued by the firms in these industries. Overall, we find that disruption is a broad phenomenon, negatively affecting incumbent firms across the spectrum of age, valuation, and levers, with the exception of very large and low-leverage firms, which confirms our central hypothesis.

About the Unit
Our strategy is to assemble and nurture a faculty whose interests and skills complement each other, and who work well together:
a) to produce a broad range of finance-related research that is published in top-tier scientific and practitioner journals, and that addresses issues of present and future importance to managers (including regulators and policy makers);
b) to develop highly-relevant and intellectually rigorous MBA and executive education courses; and
c) to mentor future academics through the Business Economics doctoral program.
Our applied focus and access to business organizations are major advantages which are reinforced by our students and our case-based approach. We have a faculty with broad expertise, and we have resources, field contacts, and institutional support, all of which we can leverage to do richer work and be more productive than we could at other institutions.

Financial Research Paper Topics - The Complete List to Choose From
A search for the right financial research paper topic is constant. Indeed, we can understand this because knowing the reasonable topics in finance puts us ahead of the game. Students majoring in business are obliged to make presentations and submit essays, projects, and research papers on banking and accounting at one point in their career.

To choose the proper topic and get prepared for the process of research paper writing , you should first explore something that nobody has explored so far.

- Find a question that has no answers yet in the field of your study and give it additional research to find a suitable solution;
- Read several finance theses and papers to get a good idea for choosing your topic;
- Always find a general viewpoint for your financial research topic and use your study to narrow it down to something specific;
- Do online research and find what topics may be a burning issue to work on them. This type of research will make the research paper topic valid, compelling, suitable for your particular research, and unique;
- Talk about your topic with your friends or other people who have experience in writing papers. You can consult your professors too.

If you should take just three essential points into account, you will increase your chances to get an A+ grade for your paper a few times! Continue reading and find out what they are!
Try to find an aspect that is very relevant to your study. It may be an ongoing issue or a topic that reflects the reasons for some processes, trends, etc. It is not the primary requirement that the topic can not cover historical aspects. It can do, but it should have a relation to the modern world. It is always a reasonable decision to choose some events that are milestones in the finance sphere. Don’t miss checking current trends and decide on this basis. So, the only demand, in this case, is the relevance of the topic.
Your finance research paper should not be fantasy. This point is not about that. It implies that your topic should be thrilling, fascinating, and always consist of understatement and even ambiguity on some scale. The person who sees the heading of your paper should feel interested in reading it but not missing it. Formulate the topic correctly. Make sure that you can convey the main message in your topic.
Your topic should be clear and concise. Avoid complex word combinations and sentences. Try to make it as simple as possible. It does not imply, however, that you should not use professional terminology. It is more about construction and how you formulate your topic. The maximum number of words in the topic should not exceed 15. Of course, there are exceptions to this rule.

Asset pricing techniques, widely used in corporations, banks, and stock and bond markets, have undergone radical changes over the last 20 years
Modern theories of portfolio choice and savings behavior have provided the basis for the innovation of these models, and Wharton’s Finance Department has remained at the forefront of these developments.
The Finance Department has four areas of specialization:
- Banking and Financial Institutions, which entails the overall economic context affecting a firm’s investments
- Corporate Finance, concentrating on the financing and investment activities of an organization
- Financial Instruments and Portfolio Management, which examines financial instruments and their market behavior
- International Finance, exploring the impact of such issues as foreign currency options and exchange rates parity on the multinational corporation
