THE UK STEWARDSHIP CODE

Given Ares’ investment focus away from traditional equities, there is limited direct applicability of the Code to the Firm; however, Ares has adopted this Stewardship Code Disclosure Statement, applying the principles of the Code, where appropriate, to its investment groups.


CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY: ARES IN MOTION

Ares prides itself on its extensive corporate citizenship endeavors and is actively committed to supporting its local communities and charities through firm-wide wide sponsorships, board positions, charitable donations and grass roots volunteerism. The impact of these contributions was the inspiration for "Ares In Motion" (A.I.M.), a global initiative to support corporate responsibility, foster employee engagement and strengthen community relationships through philanthropy. Ares in Motion encompasses the following programs:


The Volunteer program focuses on giving back to our communities and the environment. Volunteer opportunities and events are offered throughout the year and also during our Annual A.I.M. Global volunteer Initiative. Every year since the program’s launch in 2012, Ares has sponsored multiple community-based events with several hundred employees volunteering globally.
The Matching Gift program provides financial support to organizations chosen by our team members. Ares matches employee contributions dollar for dollar. Since 2011, Ares has matched employee donations to organizations focused on Education, Health and Human Services, Civics, Arts & Culture, and the Environment.
The Corporate Giving program focuses on providing support to non-profit organizations and events through corporate sponsorship donations. Each year, Ares partners with various organizations dedicated to Education, Civics, Arts & Culture, and Disaster Relief.
The Relief Efforts program is in partnership with the Red Cross and offers Ares employees an opportunity to learn more about Red Cross efforts and make donations to support disaster relief, prevention and education efforts in the United States and around the world.
