Tuesday, April 23, 2013

From Precy Dumlao, Opalesque Asia – Blackstone Group, one of the world’s largest alternative asset managers, has signed a final agreement with Credit Suisse to acquire the Swiss investment bank’s secondaries unit called Strategic Partners.

In a press statement, Blackstone said the transaction will have to undergo the customary closing conditions and is expected to be completed before the end of the third quarter of this year.

There are no available terms of the deal.

Tony James, president and COO at Blackstone commented, "We are thrilled that the people of Strategic Partners are joining Blackstone. Many of us here at Blackstone were once colleagues of the Strategic Partners team, and this gives us high confidence that it will be a seamless cultural fit here at the firm. Strategic Partners complements Blackstone's existing businesses, and we expect to be able to grow its franchise and help it enter new product areas."

Alastair Cairns, co-head of Credit Suisse’s Legacy Asset Management business, added, "Strategic Partners is a leader in the secondary private equity space. We are pleased to have reached this agreement and are confident that with Blackstone, Strategic Partners will continue to build on its excellent track record."
