Blackstone’s Real Estate Private Equity Group offers Summer Analysts the experience on a professional team whose work involves the acquisition and asset management of real estate-related companies, portfolios of real estate assets and individual properties worldwide. Summer Analysts at Blackstone have the opportunity to participate in all aspects of private equity real estate investing and can expect to be staffed on a number of teams at once.

Summer Analysts focused on acquisitions will develop an investing skillset through working on a wide range of transactions including asset, portfolio, and company leveraged buyouts. Summer Analysts in acquisitions will play an integral role in the investment process and assist in deal sourcing, LBO modeling, conducting due diligence, and presenting to Blackstone executives and partners at investment committee for final deal approval.
Summer Analysts focused on asset management will work on post-acquisition transactions including restructurings/recapitalizations, refinancings, dispositions (public IPOs and private market sales), as well as the strategy and execution of value enhancement projects, including lease and management negotiations, capital expenditure execution, and platform company strategy and direction.
