The Blackstone Group will launch a mutual fund of hedge funds, becoming the latest industry player to embrace the retail vehicle.
The New York-based firm this week filed to register the Blackstone Alternative Investment Funds. Blackstone's move follows Kohlberg Kravis Roberts' July registration of two mutual funds.
