The Blackstone Group has appointed Byron Wien as vice chairman of Blackstone Advisory Services.

Wien (pictured) was previously chief investment strategist for Pequot Capital. Before that he served for 21 years as chief (later senior) US investment strategist for Morgan Stanley.

He will act as a senior adviser both to the firm and its clients in analysing economic, social and political trends to determine the direction of financial markets and thus helping guide investment and strategic decisions. 
 
Stephen A. Schwarzman, chairman and chief executive officer of Blackstone, says: ‘Byron brings to the firm unparalleled experience, wisdom and judgment formed over many years of deep involvement in the financial markets. At a time when Blackstone stands ready to deploy the largest amount of investment capital in its history and our clients are faced with unprecedented economic turmoil and uncertainty, Byron will play a central and invaluable role in providing direction and guidance.’  
 
Wien adds: ‘Blackstone is the largest independent alternative asset manager and advisor in the world, whose businesses and clients touch almost every major market and economy. I am looking forward to working with the firm and its clients to help capitalize on the opportunities to invest and grow businesses that the current economic dislocations will produce.’   
 
Wien is a supervisory director of George Soros’ Quantum Funds and a member of the investment committees of Lincoln Center, The Pritzker Foundation, and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. He is a trustee of the New York Historical Society and a board member of The Manhattan Institute and Phoenix House Foundation.
