NEW YORK, May 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apollo (NYSE: APO) today announced it has completed its previously announced acquisition of the US asset management business of Griffin Capital (“Griffin”). As a result of the final close, Apollo has added two individual-investor focused products to its platform as well as the associated asset management team.

Stephanie Drescher, Chief Client and Product Development Officer of Apollo, said, “We are excited to close the Griffin Capital acquisition, which has added significant scale, new capabilities and additional investment products to our fast-growing Global Wealth business. We continue to execute against our ambitious global growth plans to bring more of Apollo’s alternative strategies to individuals and their wealth advisors.”

As a result of the final close, the Griffin Institutional Access Real Estate Fund and the Griffin Institutional Access Credit Fund are now advised by Apollo and have been renamed the Apollo Diversified Real Estate Fund and Apollo Diversified Credit Fund, respectively.
