Why Multi-Manager?

A diversified blend of hedge fund strategies and managers in a single, daily-liquid mutual fund


Diversification

Diversification is critical in investing and helps reduce risk in a portfolio. The Fund’s multi-manager structure provides built-in diversification for investors who seek to avoid single manager risk.

Access to Specialists

Specialists with expertise in specific hedge fund strategies are combined in one solution. Given the complexity of many hedge fund strategies, it is unlikely that a single manager has expertise across all strategies.

Dynamic allocation allows Blackstone to rotate into more attractive sectors, strategies and managers as markets evolve.

WHY HEDGE FUND STRATEGIES?

Hedge fund exposures can help diversify traditional allocations to equities and fixed income


Historical returns represent returns from January 1990, the inception of the HFRI Fund-Weighted Composite Index, through VAR HERE2018. Returns are annualized. Equity market declines were selected by identifying the two most recent instances when the S&P 500 declined by more than 40%. Use of different time periods would yield different results. Performance shown is not representative of BXMIX or the performance of any Blackstone investment. Alternatives are represented by the HFRI Fund-Weighted Composite Index. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. An investor cannot invest directly in an index. Alternatives and Equities (S&P 500 TR Index) have different risk and return profiles. Equities are subject to market risk or the risk of loss due to adverse company and industry news, or general economic decline. Alternative investments involve special risks including but not limited to, liquidity risks, foreign investment risks, higher fees and expenses, regulatory restrictions, and loss of all or a significant portion of the investment, or volatility of returns due to leveraging, short-selling or other speculative practices. An investor should evaluate alternatives and equities in the context of his or her investment objectives.


ASSET ALLOCATION

A natural complement to a traditional allocation

Allocating to the Blackstone Alternative Multi-Strategy Fund from a combination of existing equity and fixed income sleeves may mitigate overall portfolio volatility while maintaining exposure to growth assets.

LITERATURE


IMPORTANT RISKS


An investment in BXMIX, should be considered a speculative investment that entails substantial risks; you may lose part or all of your investment or your investment may not perform as well as other investments. BXMIX’s investments involve special risks including, but not limited to, loss of all or a significant portion of the investment due to leveraging, short-selling, or other speculative practices, lack of liquidity and volatility of returns. The following is a summary description of certain additional principal risks of investing in BXMIX: Allocation Risk – Blackstone’s judgment about the attractiveness, value or market trends affecting a particular asset class, investment style, sub-adviser or security may be incorrect and this may have a negative impact upon performance. Derivatives Risk – the use of derivatives involves the risk that their value may not move as expected relative to the value of the relevant underlying assets, rates, or indices. Derivatives can be subject to counterparty credit risk and may entail investment exposure greater than their notional amount. Distressed Securities Risk - investments in securities of business enterprises involved in workouts, liquidations, reorganizations, bankruptcies and similar situations involve a high degree of risk of loss since there is typically substantial uncertainty concerning the outcome of such situations. Event-Driven Trading Risk – involves the risk that the specific event identified may not occur as anticipated and that this may have a negative impact upon the market price of the securities involved. Foreign Investments/ Emerging Markets Risk - involves special risks caused by foreign political, social and economic factors, including exposure to currency fluctuations, less liquidity, less developed and less efficient trading markets, political instability and less developed legal and auditing standards. High Portfolio Turnover Risk - active trading of securities can increase transaction costs (thus lowering performance) and taxable distributions. Model and Technology Risk – involves the risk that model-based strategies, data gathering systems, order execution and trade allocation systems and risk management systems may not be successful on an ongoing basis or could contains errors, omissions, imperfections or malfunctions. Multi-Manager Risk - managers may make investment decisions which conflict with each other and as a result, the Fund could incur transaction costs without accomplishing any net investment result. Leverage Risk – borrowing money or engaging in transactions that create investment leverage can produce volatility and may exaggerate changes in the net asset value of Fund shares.

In addition, you should be aware of the following risks and conflicts relating specifically to the Fund:

  • The fees paid by the Fund to Blackstone will be reduced by the full amount of any fees paid to the Funds’ underlying managers. This compensation offset arrangement may give Blackstone an incentive to favor underlying managers that charge lower fees.
  • Subject to applicable law, the Fund is not restricted from selecting underlying managers in which Blackstone, Blackstone Clients or their affiliates have a financial interest.

The following information has not been provided in a fiduciary capacity under ERISA, and it is not intended to be, and should not be considered as, impartial investment advice. If you are an individual retirement investor, contact your financial advisor or other fiduciary unrelated to BAIA about whether any given investment idea, strategy, product or service described herein may be appropriate for your circumstances.

All investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Fund carefully before investing. The prospectus, supplement and key investor information document (collectively, the “Offering Documents”) contain this and other information about the Fund. All investors are urged to carefully read the Offering Documents in their entirety before investing.

This page is not an offer to sell the Fund’s securities and is not soliciting an offer to buy the Fund’s securities and any jurisdiction where the offer or sale is not permitted.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal values may fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. All returns include dividend and capital gain distributions.

Conflicts of Interest

Blackstone and the Sub-Advisers have conflicts of interest that could interfere with their management of the Fund. These conflicts, which are disclosed in the Fund’s Statement of Additional Information, include, without limitation:

  • Selection of Sub-Advisers. Blackstone compensates the Sub-Advisers out of the management fee it receives from the Fund. This could create an incentive for Blackstone to select Sub-Advisers with lower fee rates.
  • Financial Interests in Sub-Advisers and Service Providers. Blackstone, the Sub-Advisers, and their affiliates have financial interests in asset managers and financial service providers. Allocating to an affiliate (or hiring such entity as a service provider) benefits The Blackstone Group L.P. or the relevant Sub-Adviser and redemptions from an affiliate (or terminating such entity as a service provider) would be detrimental to The Blackstone Group L.P. or the relevant Sub-Adviser. For example:
    • Blackstone Strategic Capital Advisors L.L.C. (“BSCA”), an affiliate of BAIA, manages certain funds (the “BSCA Funds”) that acquire equity interests in established alternative asset managers (the “Strategic Capital Managers”). One of the Strategic Capital Managers in which the BSCA Funds have a minority interest is Magnetar Capital Partners L.P., a control affiliate of Magnetar Asset Management LLC, a sub-adviser for the Fund. The Fund will not participate in any of the economic arrangements between the BSCA Funds and any Strategic Capital Manager with which the Fund invests.
    • BAAM, an affiliate of BAIA, has entered into a joint venture with NWI to create Blackstone NWI Asset Management L.L.C. ("BNAM"), an emerging markets asset manager. BNAM, BAAM and NWI share certain personnel and infrastructure.
    • Blackstone is in the process of onboarding Arcesium LLC (“Arcesium”) to provide certain middle- and back-office services and technology to the Fund. The parent company of a Sub-Adviser owns a controlling, majority interest in Arcesium and BAAM owns a non-controlling, minority interest in Arcesium.
  • Other Activities of Blackstone or the Sub-Advisers. The activities in which Blackstone, the Sub-Advisers, or their affiliates are involved in on behalf of other accounts may create conflicts of interest or limit the flexibility that the Fund may otherwise have to participate in certain investments. For example, if Blackstone or a Sub-Adviser comes into possession of material non-public information with respect to a company, then Blackstone or the relevant Sub-Adviser generally will be restricted from investing in securities issued by that company. Further, Blackstone generally will be restricted from investing in portfolio companies of its affiliated private equity business.
  • Allocation of Investment Opportunities. Blackstone and the Sub-Advisers (or their affiliates) manage other accounts and have other clients with investment objectives and strategies that are similar to, or overlap with, the investment objective and strategy of the fund, creating potential conflicts of interest in investment and allocation decisions. These conflicts of interest are exacerbated to the extent that the other clients are proprietary or pay higher fees or performance-based fees.
  • There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its goals or avoid losses.
  • BAAM refers to Blackstone Alternative Asset Management L.P., the largest (by AUM) investment manager in Blackstone’s Hedge Fund Solutions Group. Blackstone Alternative Investment Advisors LLC (“BAIA”), the investment manager for BXDMS, shares employees, facilities and processes with BAAM.
