Fitch affirms Blackstone ratings

Fitch affirmed Blackstone Group Inc. and its related entities' long-term issuer default issuer ratings of A+.

The outlook on the ratings is stable. The rating agency also affirmed the F1 short-term issuer default ratings of Blackstone and its related entities.

Fitch pointed out various factors in affirming the private equity giant's ratings such as its "strong competitive position" as a global alternative investment manager, strong operating margins, solid investment track record and significant fee-earning assets under management, among other things. However, the rating agency flagged constraints such as its many limited partnership agreements, reputational risks, regulatory and legal risks, and an above average payout ratio.
