Ares Management, L.P. (“Ares” or the “Firm”) is a publicly traded, leading global alternative asset manager with approximately $87 billion of assets under management ("AUM") and approximately 800 employees. We seek to deliver attractive performance to our investor base across our investment groups and strategies, including tradable credit (long-only and alternative credit), direct lending (U.S. and European), private equity (U.S. and European flexible capital, U.S. power and energy assets and China growth capital) and real estate (debt and equity). The firm is headquartered in Los Angeles with offices across the United States, Europe and Asia. Its common units are traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol "ARES".
Ares believes each of its investment groups is a market leader based on assets under management and investment performance. Our four distinct but complementary investment groups have the ability to invest in all levels of a company’s capital structure—from senior debt to common equity. The Firm was built upon the fundamental principle that each group benefits from being part of the broader platform. 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. Since our inception in 1997, we have adhered to a disciplined investment philosophy that focuses on delivering strong risk-adjusted investment returns through market cycles. We strive to maintain a consistent credit-based approach in targeting well-structured investments in high quality businesses and real estate assets.
