Alternative money managers have amassed some $2.1 trillion of cash, with about $700 billion of that concentrated in buyout strategies, Morgan Stanley said in a report published Wednesday.

Shares of the money managers are trading at attractive levels, according to Morgan Stanley. The firm reiterated its buy-equivalent rating on Blackstone Group Inc., Hamilton Lane Inc., Partners Group Holding AG and said it’s becoming more positive on hold-rated Apollo Global Management Inc.
