Institutional investors recognize the benefits of opportunistic investing but many lack the ability to source and respond instantly to opportunities in a rapidly changing market environment. To solve this problem for our clients, Blackstone created Tactical Opportunities, a proprietary investment strategy that pursues a global multi-asset class approach to investing in illiquid assets focused on timely opportunities that fall outside other Blackstone alternative fund strategies. We seek to generate attractive, risk-adjusted returns for our investors by capitalizing on opportunistic investments around the world and across all alternative asset classes.
Sourcing, executing and capitalizing on the right investment opportunities takes a special combination of people and expertise. We believe that few other alternative managers, if any, possess the experience and breadth of the Blackstone investment platform. Tactical Opportunities harnesses this significant competitive advantage by leveraging the deep synergies that exist across Blackstone’s leading alternative asset management businesses – private equity, real estate, credit and hedge funds – to source, execute and capitalize on investment opportunities that others cannot.
Our flexible mandate enables us to dynamically adjust our strategy in the face of changing market circumstances. We invest in everything from real assets to corporate securities to unsecuritized streams of cash flows. Many of our investments have high current yields but some offer substantial capital gain potential. Our activity set ranges from seeking high IRR short duration investments to very long duration investments where compounding potentially can deliver high multiples of invested capital. Ultimately, this flexibility yields an investment approach aimed at delivering attractive returns for our investors, thereby helping them to meet their obligations to pensioners and other beneficiaries.
