Purchasing a majority ownership in a privately held company or public companies that would be better served under private ownership.

Corporate Carveouts

Acquiring a standalone asset that once sat within a corporation.


Supporting great companies that need assistance restructuring their balance sheets.

Since 2007, we have incorporated environmental, social, and governance (ESG) policies and practices into our Private Equity strategies to help drive growth for the companies we invest in, generate returns for investors and retirees, and create a positive impact on workers and communities.

Today, our ESG Reporting Program measures effectiveness and impact by annually collecting responses to more than 200 questions. This information is evaluated and used to identify key opportunities, which can lead to cost savings for the business and better financial performance of the investment.

Since 2009, Apollo has proudly published a comprehensive summary of our approach to sustainability across our ecosystem. Download our 14th Annual Sustainability Report to learn more.
