2020 Summer Analyst - Credit

About Ares Management

Ares Management Corporation ("Ares" or the "Firm") is a publicly traded, leading global alternative asset manager with approximately $137 billion of assets under management ("AUM") and over 1,000 employees. We seek to deliver attractive performance to our investor base across our investment groups and strategies, including credit, private equity and real estate. 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".

About Credit

Our Credit Group is a leading manager of credit strategies across the non-investment grade credit universe, with approximately $101.1 billion of assets under management ("AUM") and 165 funds as of March 31, 2019. We offer a range of investment strategies across the liquid and illiquid credit spectrum. Since the firm's founding in 1997, Ares has been a leader in providing credit solutions to investors searching for yield and for less correlated returns, particularly relevant in today's relatively low interest rate and volatile investment environment. We are additionally one of the largest self-originating direct lenders to the U.S. and European middle markets, providing one-stop financing solutions for small-to-medium sized companies, which we believe are increasingly underserved by traditional lenders. We provide investors access to our broad credit capabilities through several vehicles, including commingled funds, separately managed accounts, publicly traded vehicles and sub-advised funds for retail investors.
