We Believe

As a catalyst for shared prosperity and a better future, we seek to lead the alternative investment industry, both in terms of generating returns and making a lasting positive impact.

Our growth in becoming one of the largest alternative investment managers is aligned with this vision and is a testament to our shared values, experienced management team, and focus on performance and high-quality investor base, which includes large pension funds, insurance companies, banks and private banks, sovereign wealth funds and university endowments.

As trusted stewards, our mission is to invest to help businesses flourish and create enduring value for all of our stakeholders. We provide flexible capital to established businesses across the credit, real estate, private equity and infrastructure asset classes.

The Ares Advantage is that these distinct but complementary investment strategies, with approximately $428 billion of assets under management, collaborate to leverage the power of the firm’s platform to aim to deliver innovative solutions and attractive risk-adjusted returns. We believe the synergies from this multi-asset strategy provide our professionals with insights into industry trends, access to significant deal flow and the ability to assess relative value.

Whether it’s protecting and growing the capital of our Limited Partners, creating long-term value for our shareholders or aligning our interests with business partners, our team focuses on driving shared success.

The Firm

Built upon the fundamental principle that each group benefits from being part of the broader platform.

Since our inception in 1997, we have adhered to a disciplined investment philosophy that focuses on delivering compelling risk-adjusted investment returns throughout market cycles.

We strive to maintain a consistent credit-based approach that targets well-structured investments in high quality businesses and real estate assets.
