THE “JUICE” OF THE HIGH INCOME ALTERNATIVES FUND
Ares’s Greg Mason provides an overview of their Equity Income Alternatives strategy and discusses how his team can tap into the expertise on the Ares platform.
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT COMPANIES (BDCS) OVERVIEW
One major area the Ares team focuses on is BDCs—publicly traded lenders to private U.S. businesses that can generate high yields but that few investors have exposure to.
MORTGAGE REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUSTS (MREITS) OVERVIEW
Another area of focus for the Ares team is mREITs. Unlike equity REITs that own the real estate and pass on rents to investors, mREITs make or purchase real estate loans or mortgages, using leverage to generate high yields.
MASTER LIMITED PARTNERSHIPS (MLPS) OVERVIEW
The Ares team will invest in midstream energy, predominantly MLPs. These companies own the nation’s pipelines and other energy infrastructure and pay out a large percentage of their income to investors.
