We seek to deliver attractive performance to our investor base across our investment groups and strategies, including credit, private equity, real estate and strategic initiatives. The firm is headquartered in Los Angeles with offices across the United States, Europe, Asia and Australia. Its common shares 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 three distinct but complementary investment groups have the ability to invest across 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 compelling risk-adjusted investment returns throughout market cycles. We strive to maintain a consistent credit-based approach in targeting well-structured investments in high quality businesses and real estate assets. We believe our growth in becoming one of the largest alternative asset managers is a testament to our experienced management team, focus on performance and high-quality investor base, which includes large pension funds, university endowments, sovereign wealth funds, banks and insurance companies.
