Blackstone's PEU Mutual Fund to Invest in Hedge Funds

Bloomberg reported:

Blackstone Group LP (BX:US), the world’s biggest manager of alternative assets, is starting a mutual fund that will invest in hedge funds, part of an industrywide push to attract assets from individual investors.
The Blackstone Alternative Multi-Manager Fund will charge annual fees of 3.25 percent of assets, including a 1.95 percent management fee.
