NEW YORK, Feb. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apollo Global Management, Inc. (NYSE: APO) (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, “Apollo”) today reported results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2021.
Marc Rowan, Chief Executive Officer of Apollo said, “2021 was an exceptional year for Apollo. We generated record annual distributable earnings, underpinned by record fee-related earnings that grew 15% year-over-year despite significant investments in our talented team to capture the massive growth opportunity in front of us. We remain highly confident in our ability to execute the strategic vision and financial plan we presented at Investor Day in October. Since then, we’ve demonstrated meaningful progress on our three key bets, including expanding asset origination, establishing product and distribution capabilities to serve retail investors, and growing our capital solutions business. Upon completing the merger with Athene on January 1st, we enter 2022 with great momentum, fully-aligned and well-positioned to deliver differentiated growth and returns.”
