ACF is part of Ares, a publicly traded, leading global alternative asset manager with approximately $99 billion in pro forma assets under management.(1) Our ACF business sits within the Ares Credit Group, one of the largest self-originating direct lenders in the U.S. and Europe. We provide one-stop financing solutions for small-to-medium sized companies, which we believe are increasingly underserved by traditional lenders. We conduct our self-originated U.S. corporate lending activities primarily through Ares Capital Corporation (NASDAQ: ARCC), a leading speciality finance company, and our ACF platform, which provides asset-based and cash flow loans.
