Ares is a premier provider of private markets investment solutions

Since our beginnings as a private credit provider nearly 25 years ago, Ares has been immersed in the private markets. Our history gives us deep knowledge across private credit, private equity and private real assets. Our team’s collaborative approach to research, origination and underwriting has delivered durable results1 to institutional and private investors.

Our culture of collaboration and investment skill have positioned us to be a provider of choice for advisors who serve individual investors. We work with advisors to demystify this crucial asset class by providing product-agnostic education and personalized support.

We endeavor to help advisors learn how to think about the private markets – we don’t tell them what to think.

We believe our purpose-built investment solutions make the private markets accessible to a broad set of investors. We apply our in depth research and exclusive deal flow to portfolios that are designed to meet the needs and preferences of the individual investor. Advisors now have diversified access to the asset classes that our institutional partners have enjoyed for years.

A private markets pioneer

For nearly three decades, we have made credit solutions available to companies that were unable to access capital through traditional banking channels. Today we’re one of the largest non-bank lenders in the world. The skills we honed analyzing credit and managing risk have helped shape our disciplined approach to investing in private equity and private real assets.
