Ares Believes

We Believe


Our growth in becoming one of the largest alternative investment managers is a testament to our experienced management team, 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.

We are trusted stewards of flexible capital, investing through established businesses in the credit, private equity and real estate markets. The Ares Advantage is that these distinct but complementary investment groups, with approximately $149 billion of assets under management, collaborate to leverage the power of the firm’s platform 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.
