Blackstone Alternative Asset Management to Launch Investment-Focused Mutual Fund

Blackstone announced that Blackstone Alternative Asset Management (BAAM) will launch its first alternative investment-focused mutual fund that offers daily liquidity. BAAM is developing this custom solution for a strategic investor by leveraging its longstanding relationships with some of the hedge fund managers. The Blackstone Alternative Multi-Manager Fund (the 'Fund') is a registered, open-end mutual fund that is managed by Blackstone Alternative Investment Advisors LLC. The investment objective of the Fund is to seek capital appreciation by allocating assets among a variety of investment sub-advisers with experience managing non-traditional or 'alternative' investment strategies. Blackstone may also manage a portion of the Fund's assets directly and may invest in unaffiliated hedge funds. Through the use of alternative investment strategies, Blackstone seeks to provide low beta to equity and fixed income markets. The Fund's multi-manager, multi-strategy structure will allow Blackstone to dynamically shift capital to take advantage of the team's top-down market views with the goal of managing risk and generating alpha. Blackstone will employ the same disciplined investment process and will utilize the same experienced investment team that has long served its institutional clients.
