Blackstone’s Q1-13 AUM up 15% from last year to record $218bn

Friday, April 19, 2013

Benedicte Gravrand, Opalesque Geneva: - For the first quarter of 2013 (Q1-13), Blackstone declared its economic net income had risen by 28% to $628m, up from $491m in last year’s first quarter, driven by strong fund performance.

Fee earning AuM was $170bn, up 9% yoy, as $30bn of gross inflows and $4bn of market appreciation more than offset $18bn of outflows largely related to realizations.

Stephen A. Schwarzman, Chairman and CEO, said, "Blackstone achieved strong first quarter results across the board. Revenue rose 29% year-over-year, and earnings were up 28%.
