Please read the applicable Ares Fund or Real Estate Income Trust ("REIT") Prospectus prior to making any investment decision and consider carefully the REIT’s or Funds’ investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses and other important information described therein. A copy of the REIT and Funds Prospectuses, which contain this and other information about the REIT or Fund, must be made available to you in connection with any offering of the Shares. Click here to view the REIT and Funds' Prospectuses. The REIT and Funds prospectuses do not constitute an offer to sell securities, nor a solicitation of an offer to buy their Shares in any state where the offer or sale is not permitted.

Ares Wealth Management Solutions does not offer investment advice. Individuals should consult a professional investment advisor.

Investments in the Ares Private Markets Fund, Ares Strategic Income Fund, or Ares REITs are not suitable for all investors. Investing in shares of the Funds or REITs involves a high degree of risk, including the risk that payment of distributions is uncertain and cannot be guaranteed, the risk that an investment is not liquid, and the risk that stockholders may lose the entire amount of their investment. Please review the AREIT Summary Risk Factors and the Prospectus, AIREIT Summary Risk Factors and the Prospectus, and the APMF Summary Risk Factors and the Prospectus, and the ASIF Summary Risk Factors and the Prospectus for a complete list of the risks associated with the REITs, Ares Private Markets Fund, and Ares Strategic Income Fund investments.

No offering is made except by a prospectus filed with the Department of Law of the State of New York. Neither the SEC nor any other state securities regulator has approved or disapproved of the securities described in the prospectus or determined if the prospectus is truthful or complete. In addition, the Attorney General of the state of New York has not passed on or endorsed the merits of the offering. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense. Fund and REIT shares will be offered to the public through Ares Wealth Management Solutions, LLC, member of Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and SIPC, which will act as the dealer manager, and through other members of FINRA or with the assistance of registered investment advisors.
