Our investment solutions help traditional fixed income investors access the syndicated loan and high yield bond markets and capitalize on opportunities across traded corporate credit. Our strategies include syndicated loans, high yield bonds, and multi-asset credit.
This strategy delivers a diversified portfolio of liquid, traded non-investment grade secured loans to corporate issuers. Loans are one of the few floating rate fixed income alternatives and can be especially suitable for investors seeking to manage duration. Our funds include both North American and European issuers. We typically benchmark our loan strategy against the Credit Suisse Leveraged Loan Index.
High Yield Bonds
This strategy seeks to deliver a diversified portfolio of liquid, traded non-investment grade corporate bonds with an emphasis of maximizing risk-adjusted return opportunities. This strategy utilizes secured, unsecured and subordinated debt instruments of issuers in both North America and Europe. We benchmark our high yield strategy against the ICE BofAML US High Yield Master II Constrained Index.
Our Multi-Asset Credit strategies combine both syndicated loans and high yield bonds, as well as other asset categories including structured credit, special situations, and related credit instruments, into a single portfolio. These portfolios are designed to offer investors a flexible solution to global credit investing by allowing Ares to tactically allocate between multiple asset classes in various market conditions in order to capture the best relative value. This strategy invests globally, can be highly customized, and is designed to “go anywhere” within the liquid non-investment grade credit universe.
