Ares Australia Management is an investment manager focused on fixed income (credit) and alternative strategies across private equity and real estate.


Ares Australia Management (AAM) is a strategic joint venture between Ares Management Corporation and Fidante Partners formed in 2019 in order to coordinate the marketing and investment management of investor capital from Australia and New Zealand for Ares’ various Credit, Private Equity and Real Estate strategies. AAM combines Ares’ robust suite of demonstrated investment strategies with Fidante’s broad investor distribution, local fund reporting and back office administration. 


Ares takes both a bottom-up and top-down approach, with a deep focus on disciplined credit selection and active asset rotation, as well as current, and forward looking global macroeconomic and technical factors impacting each sector. Close monitoring of each investment within the Fund provides the basis for making buy, sell and hold decisions. In actively managing the Fund across complementary asset categories, Ares utilises a wide range of tools to impact performance and risk management, with greater opportunity to optimise relative value. Ares seeks to help investors navigate the credit cycle and change risk posture as necessary, which Ares believes affords more opportunity to seek alpha within the Fund.
