“During the first quarter, we crossed a major milestone for our company by surpassing $200 billion in assets under management after reaching $100 billion just four years ago,” said Michael Arougheti, Chief Executive Officer and President of Ares. “Our 39% growth in assets under management was supported by continued strong momentum in both fundraising and fund performance as we generated attractive investment solutions for our investors.
