About Blackstone

Formed in 1985, Blackstone are one of the world’s leading investment firms, with over $450 billion worth of assets under management globally.

The firm seeks to create positive economic impact and long-term value for its investors, the companies they invest in, and the communities in which they work. They aim to do this by using extraordinary people and flexible capital to help companies solve problems.

They emphasise ethics and integrity, creating a collaborative environment in which to work and a desire to constantly innovate in order to deliver strong results and reduce risk.

Blackstone’s vision is now to deliver outstanding performance for the next thirty years, and to never grow complacent, forget those for whom they work or fail to take the long-term view.

The firm’s UK operations are based in London.
