Apollo are alternative investment managers. We are contrarian, value-oriented investors in private equity, credit and real estate. We raise, invest and manage funds on our own behalf and for of some of the world’s most prominent high-net-worth individual investors. Over time, our investment philosophy has evolved from Graham’s original “discount to net asset purchase” model into a contrarian value strategy focusing on the margin of safety and capital appreciation over long periods of time. We believe these goals go hand in hand, and it is our mission to deliver superior returns on investment while limiting the risk of permanent loss of capital.
We attribute our success to our key competitive strengths:
Our investment process and approach to investing incorporate our deep industry expertise and focus on agile transactions.
our strong management team and reputation;
We operate our businesses in an integrated manner, which we believe distinguishes us from investment firms. Our investment professionals frequently collaborate and share information across disciplines including market insight, management, banking, and consultant contacts as well as potential investment opportunities, which contributes to our library of industry knowledge and enables us to invest successfully across a company’s capital structure.
Our investment approach is value-oriented, focusing on industries in which we have considerable knowledge, and emphasizing downside protection and the preservation of capital.
We have successfully applied this investment philosophy since Apollo’s founding, allowing us to identify what we believe to be attractive investment opportunities, deploy capital across the balance sheet of industry-leading businesses, and create value for our investors throughout economic cycles.
