Tactical Opportunities (Tac Opps) is an opportunistic investing platform seeking to capitalize on global investment opportunities that are time-sensitive, complex, or in dislocated markets where we believe risk is fundamentally mispriced.

The Tac Opps’ team invests globally across asset classes, industries and geographies, and can leverage intellectual capital from across Blackstone’s businesses to inform investment due diligence and execution. Our flexible investment mandate enables us to dynamically adjust to changing market conditions and to focus on deep value opportunities that may be overlooked by less nimble market participants.
Flexible Mandate
Designed to take advantage of a rapidly evolving investment landscape, we serve as a source of differentiated investment opportunities for our investors and an innovative solution provider to sellers.
Leveraging the strength of the firm’s global platform, our portfolios provide exposure to timely investment themes across asset classes, industries and geographies.
Nimble and Decisive
Identifying and executing on diverse opportunities requires a broad, deep and experienced perspective balanced by the ability to act in a nimble, decisive manner.
Blackstone's leading alternative asset platform yields compelling insights and synergies that inform our investment decisions.

Tactical Opportunities

In a world where the most attractive investment opportunities are often short-lived and difficult to source, analyze and execute, Tac Opps is positioned to thrive. Tac Opps is one of the world’s leading opportunistic investment platforms with a dedicated team of 60 professionals who marshal the resources and insights of Blackstone to identify and execute differentiated investments on behalf of our investors. As our investments typically fall outside traditional alternative investment categories, we strive to deliver less correlated returns and lower volatility across our portfolio.
