Blue Owl considering acquisition of European lender Hayfin – report
Blue Owl Capital (NYSE:OWL) is evaluating an acquisition of European lender Hayfin Capital Management.
A purchase would add €30 billion ($32 billion) in assets under management to Blue Owl (OWL), which oversees $150 billion in assets, according to a Bloomberg report on Friday, which cited a person familiar with the matter. Talks between the parties haven’t started.
Blue Owl (OWL) has been looking at ways to expand into Europe, either through building its own team or purchasing an existing manager, Bloomberg said.
Bloomberg reported earlier this month that Antares Capital is also weighing a purchase of Hayfin.
