Blue Owl Capital Inc. First Quarter 2022 Results
New York, New York, May 5, 2022 – Blue Owl Capital Inc. (“Blue Owl”) (NYSE:OWL) today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.
Doug Ostrover, CEO of Blue Owl said, “Blue Owl demonstrated another quarter of robust growth, backed by the stability of our permanent capital and the strong demand we are seeing for our income-oriented strategies. Assets under management grew year over year 76% to $102 billion and we continued to see strong growth in our retail fundraise, experiencing year over year growth of 172% to $2.2 billion. FRE Management fees increased 51% year over year, standing in contrast to the ongoing volatility and dislocation we see in public equity and debt markets. Our strong track record has resonated with investors, and our strategies are well-positioned in the face of a rising interest rate environment. We are poised to meaningfully scale our business across Direct Lending, GP Capital Solutions, and Real Estate, investing in origination and distribution capabilities to drive Blue Owl to the next level in our evolution as a firm. ”
