Global Head of Blackstone Strategic Partners, Verdun Perry, explains what’s behind the enormous growth in the secondary market – and why he’s optimistic about the road ahead. 

Blackstone Strategic Partners Closes World’s Largest Secondaries Fund

Blackstone Strategic Partners closed the world’s largest secondaries fund as of January 18, 2023, with $22.2 billion in committed capital. This milestone is a testament to the remarkable growth Strategic Partners has undergone, expanding from less than $10 billion in AUM at inception to $67 billion today.

The Secondaries Investor 50 – fundraisers belie difficult 2023

Blackstone Strategic Partners’ Fund IX, which closed on $22.2 billion in January, was the largest secondaries fund ever raised at the time. When combined with the $2.7 billion the firm has raised for its Strategic Partners GP Solutions vehicle, this secondaries juggernaut has helped the firm maintain its status as the number one secondaries manager by capital raised in this year’s Secondaries Investor 50 ranking.
