Blackstone, the world’s largest alternative asset manager, has announced that it had reached $1 trillion in assets under management (AUM).
And that is a lot of spondula…
This milestone was achieved three years ahead of schedule, after Blackstone set a goal of reaching $1 trillion by 2026 with the firm’s AUM has grown by an average of 20% per year over the past decade managing a wide range of assets, including private equity, real estate, credit, and hedge funds.
Blackstone’s success is due in part to its strong investment performance, but it is also due to its ability to attract large amounts of capital from investors around the world (Ed: No shite, Shirlock…).
We say, stating the bleeding obvious.
Here’s a quote from the head honcho to read while you wonder how big his bonus will be…
“We are proud to have reached this significant milestone,” said Stephen Schwarzman, Blackstone’s chairman and CEO. “This is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, and to the trust that our investors have placed in us.”
No doubt Blackstone’s $1 trillion AUM is a major achievement and it puts the firm in a unique position to continue to grow and expand in the years to come.
In addition to its strong investment performance, Blackstone has also been a leader in the development of new alternative investment products.
For example, the firm was one of the first to launch a private equity fund that invests in infrastructure assets.
So Blackstone’s $1 trillion AUM is a major milestone, but it is also possibly just the beginning…
