According to an FT article published on Tuesday, Blackstone is to close a fund that offers investors exposure to a range of hedge funds and other trading strategies

This comes after assets fell nearly 90 per cent in four years amid lacklustre returns. The US alternative asset manager has told investors it will wind down the Blackstone Diversified Multi-Strategy fund by the end of the year, the group told the Financial Times. The so-called Ucits fund is governed by EU rules that make it easier for non-specialist investors to buy. Multi-strategy Ucits funds such as this are in part an attempt by managers to capitalise on the success of giant hashtag#hedgefunds such as Citadel and Millennium, which employ teams of traders across a wide range of strategies and which were among the biggest hedge fund winners from the coronavirus pandemic. The fund’s closure, which has not previously been reported, demonstrates how hard it can be to capture and package that success for a wide audience. Source: Financial Times
