NEW YORK (Reuters) - Blackstone (NYSE:BX) Inc, the world's largest alternative asset manager, posted an 86% surge in its second-quarter distributable earnings on Thursday driven by strong asset sales despite a drop in the value of most of its funds amid a market downturn.

Blackstone completed the sale of several, primarily real estate, assets during the quarter, including the divestment for $5.65 billion of luxury hotel and casino The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and the 21 billion euro ($23.81 billion) recapitalization of Mileway, the biggest operator of urban warehouses in Europe.

Some of these deals had been inked before Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February and subsequent interest rate hikes by central banks sent markets into a downward spiral. The divestments were completed in the second quarter, allowing Blackstone to book lucrative performance fees.

Distributable earnings - which represent the cash available for paying dividends to shareholders - rose to $2 billion in the three months to June 30, from $1.1 billion a year ago. This beat average analysts' estimate of $1.03 billion, according to financial data provider Refinitiv.

Blackstone said its private equity portfolio depreciated by 6.7% during the quarter, while its opportunistic real estate funds fell 1%. Funds managed under its hedge fund unit were flat at 0.6%. By comparison, the benchmark S&P 500 index was down 16.5% during the period.

Lower corporate valuations sent Blackstone scouring for bargains. The firm spent $48 billion on new acquisitions, including several real estate income trusts - American Campus (NYSE:ACC) Communities Inc and Preferred Apartment Communities (NYSE:APTS) Inc. It also agreed to pay $6.3 billion for Crown Resorts, Australia's largest casino operator.

Under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), Blackstone reported a net loss of $29.4 million, compared with a $1.3 billion net income a year ago. This is because that metric takes into account the big drop in the valuation of the company's funds.

Assets under management hit a record $940.8 billion, up 3% from $915 billion in the prior quarter, driven by strong fundraising.

Unspent capital grew to a record $170.1 billion, up from $139.3 billion three month earlier. Blackstone declared a quarterly dividend of $1.27 per share, up from 70 cents a year ago.
