Marc Lipschultz’s Biography

Marc S. Lipschultz is Co-President of Blue Owl Capital Inc., a firm specializing in direct lending and capital solutions for the alternatives industry.

Blue Owl was born out of a merger between two leading alternative asset managers, Owl Rock Capital Partners and Dyal Capital. Built upon the expertise of both companies, Blue Owl offers smart financing and capital solutions to investment management firms and their portfolio companies, while also providing investors access to the attractive risk-adjusted return potential of its range of investment strategies.

Prior to the formation of Blue Owl, Marc co-founded Owl Rock Capital Partners with Craig Packer and Douglas Ostrover in 2016. As President and Co-Chief Investment Officer of Owl Rock, Marc leads investment strategies built upon his three decades of experience in private credit, private equity and infrastructure.

Prior to Owl Rock, Marc served on the Management Committee and as Global Head of Energy and Infrastructure at KKR. Prior to his tenure at KKR, Marc began his career at Goldman Sachs, where he specialized in mergers & acquisitions and principal investment activities.

As a committed philanthropist, Marc serves on the Board of Directors of the Mount Sinai Health System, the largest healthcare system in New York City, and the 92nd Street Y, a nonprofit cultural and community center serving the people in New York City and the surrounding areas. He also sits on a range of boards for other entities, including the Hess Corporation, the American Enterprise Institute, Riverdale Country School and the Michael J. Fox Foundation.

In 2012, Marc was recognized for his accomplishments in the private equity sector. He was ranked at number five on the Forbes Dealmaker 50, where he was credited for executing one of the largest and most rapid profits in recent private equity history.

Marc holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BA in Economics from Stanford University.
