In this episode of Zenith Investment Partner’s ‘Meet the Manager’, Ares Australia Management Head Teiki Benveniste discusses Ares’ edge in the Australian market and the ‘sweet spot’ of credit.

Teiki shares insight into the Ares Global Credit Income Fund, designed as a yield enhancer and diversifier for Australian investors’ portfolios, and how the heightened focus on credit selection and preservation of capital is key to avoiding losses. He discusses today’s rapidly evolving market and how nimble and active portfolio management remain key to capitalising on short but frequent bouts of volatility.
