“We will begin raising our flagship private equity and real estate funds in the next several months. We expect our fundraising supercycle to bring the firm’s total AuM above the $500 billion milestone, likely in the first half of next year,” Schwarzman said in an investor call for Blackstone’s second-quarter earnings.
