WHAT WE DO

We provide access to alternative investment strategies through portfolios of hedge funds, registered liquid funds, direct investing, manager seeding and general partner ownership.

Partnership

We seek to build strategic partnerships with our clients, creating solutions designed to meet their specific objectives. Additionally, by forging long-term partnerships with talented investment managers and leveraging our position in the industry, we strive to negotiate attractive terms for our clients.

People

Our deep and experienced team has the expertise to access differentiated exposures across a spectrum of alternative investment activities. The quality of our people is a key driver of our success.

Position

Our scale and breadth of relationships, coupled with Blackstone’s global reach, allow us to better identify, evaluate and implement new investments. Our size also gives us the ability to negotiate customized mandates and improved terms with managers, which directly benefit our investors.

Our Strategies

We build customized portfolios of alternative investment strategies. As a market leader in hedge fund solutions, we have built lasting and valuable partnerships with underlying managers. Our rigorous process for evaluating managers and opportunities is critical to our success.
We deliver institutional-caliber investment exposures to individuals and their financial advisors in easily accessible, registered funds that employ the same disciplined investment process and utilize the same experienced team that has long served our institutional clients. Our liquid, open-end and closed-end funds provide access to some of our largest manager relationships.
We directly invest in special situations and other differentiated opportunities that we source through our vast network. The size and scale of our platform, combined with our deep relationships across the industry, give us access to interesting deal flow and idea generation. They also provide us with considerable resources to research and manufacture new exposures.
We seek to partner with talented managers at all stages of their life cycles. We provide seed capital to emerging managers to help them grow and stabilize their businesses, and we acquire minority stakes in established managers, serving as a strategic partner to help them build enduring franchises.
All numbers are as of June 30, 2020.
