Fidelity started selling a mutual fund which is a conduit to a Blackstone hedge fund, while Kohlberg Kravis Roberts publicly traded closed-end fund which buys loans and high-yield debt. Fidelity allows investors to pick a risk profile that includes up to 5% in alternative funds. The difference between Blackstone's new fund and a typical hedge fund is cited.
