Throughout 2022, investors faced a uniquely challenging market environment that is likely to persist in 2023. The traditional 60/40 portfolio delivered its worst returns in nearly 100 years1, indicating that the rapidly changing financial landscape demands a new approach to portfolio construction.

Private markets, accessed through alternative investments, proved to be resilient and outperformed their public market counterparts in 2022. We believe they have the opportunity to do so again in 2023, as ongoing market volatility will present compelling opportunities for scaled managers with differentiated capabilities and deep expertise. In particular, we believe strategies that provide consistent income, principal preservation, and hedge against volatility and inflation will outperform. Blue Owl’s strategies are purpose built to do just that.

We are excited to release our 2023 market outlooks for the unique markets we serve: Direct Lending, Real Estate, and GP Capital Solutions. Penned by members of Blue Owl’s executive leadership team, these outlooks identify key themes and opportunities that lie ahead.
