Private Equity Real Estate (PERE) selected award winners by researching real estate news sources (including PERE and perenews.com) to compile a list of finalists, vetting those finalists and soliciting votes from readers. Blackstone has not investigated and does not know the makeup of voters. A different set of voters may have achieved different results. Blackstone does not know whether it has been rated by this or any other third party in any way that would conflict with these awards. There may be other categories for which Blackstone, its funds or its portfolio companies were nominated but not awarded.
