Risk Factors

Summary of Risk Factors

BREIT is a non-listed REIT that invests primarily in stabilized income-generating commercial real estate investments across asset classes in the United States and, to a lesser extent, real estate debt investments, with a focus on current income. We may invest to a lesser extent in Canada and Europe and potentially elsewhere. This investment involves a high degree of risk. You should purchase these securities only if you can afford the complete loss of your investment. You should read the prospectus carefully for a description of the risks associated with an investment in BREIT. These risks include, but are not limited to, the following:

Certain countries have been susceptible to epidemics which may be designated as pandemics by world health authorities, most recently COVID-19. The outbreak of such epidemics, together with any resulting restrictions on travel or quarantines imposed, has had and may in the future have a negative impact on the economy and business activity globally (including in the countries in which BREIT invests), and thereby may adversely affect the performance of BREIT’s investments. Furthermore, the rapid development of epidemics could preclude prediction as to their ultimate adverse impact on economic and market conditions, and, as a result, presents material uncertainty and risk with respect to BREIT and the performance of its investments. For further information on the impact of COVID-19 on BREIT, please refer to “Risk Factors—The current outbreak of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, has caused severe disruptions in the U.S. and global economy and has had an adverse impact on our performance and results of operations” in BREIT’s prospectus.

Financial information is approximate and as of September 30, 2021, unless otherwise noted. The words “we”, “us”, and “our” refer to BREIT, together with its consolidated subsidiaries, including BREIT Operating Partnership L.P., unless the context requires otherwise.

Important Disclosure About Other Blackstone Real Estate Funds

This website includes information related to prior investments Blackstone Real Estate has made, in which BREIT will not have any interest. Prospective investors should note that the investment programs, objectives, leverage policies and strategies of Blackstone’s opportunistic real estate private equity funds (the “Opportunistic Real Estate Private Equity Funds”), the Blackstone real estate debt funds (the “Real Estate Debt Funds”), and core+ real estate private equity funds (the “Core+ Real Estate Private Equity Funds”) are substantially different from the investment program and objectives of BREIT, despite each strategy focusing on making real estate-related investments. Specifically, the Opportunistic Real Estate Private Equity Funds invest in “opportunistic” real estate and real estate-related assets globally (which often are under managed assets and with higher potential for equity appreciation), the Real Estate Debt Funds invest in debt investments including mezzanine loans, liquid securities, mortgages and corporate credit, the Core+ Real Estate Private Equity Funds invest in substantially stabilized real estate across office, residential, industrial, retail and life science office sectors, with a focus on the major global markets and total return, whereas BREIT is a publicly registered non-listed, perpetual-life REIT that generally targets primarily stabilized income- generating commercial real estate investments across asset classes in the United States and, to a lesser extent real estate debt investments, with a focus on current return. The information provided herein regarding the Opportunistic Real Estate Private Equity Funds, the Real Estate Debt Funds, and the Core+ Real Estate Private Equity Funds is, therefore, provided solely for background purposes.
