Blackstone becoming the new Berkshire Hathaway?

The final week of February has proven to be an interesting week for the finance and business news. One interesting topic is about how Blackstone Group is looking into becoming the next Berkshire Hathaway. Blackstone’s private-equity head, Jeff Baratta, has been in talks with its biggest investors about creating a “coalition of the willing.” Jeff Baratta wants to be able to expand its range in buying. The private-equity firm would like to be able to purchase companies and hold on to them longer than the normal time period of five to 10 years.

Quote:
According to Jeff Baratta, “I don’t know why Warren Buffet should be the only person who can have a 15-year, 14% sort of return horizon.”

Blackstone Tactical Opportunities Group Overview

Does anybody have any information on BX's Tactical Opportunities group? Know it was started a few years ago, but don't really know much beyond that - the work they do, investments they pursue, group size/pay/culture? Tried searching but not much available on the forums. Appreciate any insight you have on the topic, thanks guys.

Barbarians at the gate: the appeal of a job at BX

Seems that a job opening at Blackstone doesn't go unnoticed: an Associate position @ the BX Charitable Foundation gathered 2,142 applicants (and counting) from LinkedIn alone https://www.linkedin.com/jobs2/view/17010382.

If it is safe to assume at least that many from other sources, there might be 5,000 candidates for this one.

FT offer decision: Big 4 Audit vs. Internal Audit at Major PE shop

Hello there,

I am graduating from college this upcoming December and have two full-time offers on the table. The first is at a Big 4 firm in their Asset Management sector. I have interned there for two full busy seasons on one of the office's biggest HF client (a lot of visibility w/ upper management) and would continue to do so if I accept.

On the flip side, I also have an offer in an internal audit role at a major PE shop in NYC (think KKR, Blackstone, Carlyle etc..) I have never interned here before and do not know a ton about the role.

Blackstone Advisory FT Analyst Interviews

I've been trying to figure out how to best prepare for Blackstone Advisory FT interviews, but all I've been able to find is general advice stating the interviews are among the most technical on the Street. Does highly technical mean I should have taken an Advanced Corporate Finance or similar course in addition to interview guides?
