Job Description:
BAAM - Individual Investor Solutions ("IIS") and Multimedia Marketing/Communications Strategy, Analyst/Associate

Employer: Blackstone

Firm Overview: Blackstone is one of the world's leading investment firms. We seek to create positive economic impact and long-term value for our investors, the companies we invest in, and the communities in which we work. We do this by using extraordinary people and flexible capital to help companies solve problems. Our asset management businesses, with $554 billion in assets under management, include investment vehicles focused on private equity, real estate, public debt and equity, growth equity, opportunistic, non-investment grade credit, real assets and secondary funds, all on a global basis. Further information is available at Follow Blackstone on Twitter @Blackstone.

Business Unit: BAAM

Business Unit Overview: Blackstone Alternative Asset Management (BAAM®) manages approximately $81 billion across a diversified set of businesses, including a customized portfolio solutions business, a special situations platform, a business that purchases GP stakes in alternative asset managers, an open-ended mutual fund platform, and an emerging manager seeding business. BAAM invests across a variety of asset classes and strategies to create solutions for its investors. Through its sharp focus on clients' goals, a rigorous due-diligence process and access to Blackstone's global insights, BAAM strives to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns across market cycles while mitigating downside risk during stressed market environments.

Job Title: Analyst or Associate

Job Description: This Analyst/Associate will assume a hybrid role, contributing to both BAAM's Individual Investor Solutions ("IIS") business and broader multimedia marketing/communications efforts for other BAAM businesses. The IIS business is one of the fastest growing areas within BAAM. In less than eight years, the business has grown to oversee approximately $10.5 billion in AUM and has become a significant contributor to revenue for BAAM.

This Analyst/Associate will play an essential role in all of the IIS team's work and will be dually responsible for (i) business development and management of some of the team's largest client relationships, and (ii) strategic planning for the overall IIS business including a focus on developing the next generation of products.

Additionally, this Analyst/Associate will help drive multimedia marketing strategy and content creation related to all of BAAM's business units, including crafting fund-related materials and producing podcasts and videos on timely topics related to BAAM funds and broader market insights. Part of the role will also involve liaising with Blackstone's Public Affairs team around communications and press strategy for relevant BAAM business updates.
In conducting his/her responsibilities, the Analyst/Associate will need to collaborate with multiple areas of Blackstone and BAAM. Across Blackstone, the Analyst/Associate will work closely with colleagues in other business units of the firm on best practices related to client service, multimedia marketing, communications strategy and product development. In addition, the role requires close collaboration with the firm's Private Wealth Solutions business line that serves as the primary distribution partner to wealth managers, banks, family offices and independent broker dealers. Within BAAM, the Analyst/Associate will need to work closely with the Portfolio Managers for all funds, the broader Investment team, as well as the Legal and Product Structuring group.

The role offers the candidate a unique opportunity to work closely with senior members of the IIS team (including the Global Head of IIS, the Chief Compliance Officer and the Head of Multimedia Marketing/Communications Strategy) as well as with the Board of Trustees for BAAM's registered funds.
