With over 30 years of proven expertise across Private Equity, Credit and Real Estate, regions and industries, we’re known for our integrated businesses, our strong investment performance, our value-oriented philosophy – and our people.

Position Overview

Apollo is a high-growth, global alternative asset manager. In our asset management business, we seek to provide our clients excess return at every point along the risk-reward spectrum from investment grade to private equity with a focus on three investing strategies: yield, hybrid, and equity. For more than three decades, our investing expertise across our fully integrated platform has served the financial return needs of our clients and provided businesses with innovative capital solutions for growth. Through Athene, our retirement services business, we specialize in helping clients achieve financial security by providing a suite of retirement savings products and acting as a solutions provider to institutions. Our patient, creative, and knowledgeable approach to investing aligns our clients, businesses we invest in, our employees, and the communities we impact, to expand opportunity and achieve positive outcomes.

The Role

Within its global credit group, Apollo currently operates an industry leading real estate lending platform primarily focused on balance sheet mortgage lending. The platform continues to grow and adapt to the evolving CRE market and plans to augment its current capabilities by establishing an opportunistic CRE lending group to deliver comprehensive capital solutions to real estate owners and operators.

The Managing Director or Principal (depending on experience) will play a pivotal role in the design and implementation of this new group. In addition, this individual will leverage their network as well as Apollo’s broad capabilities to source and originate investment opportunities and structure deals across the real estate landscape.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Utilize Apollo’s existing capabilities and leverage internal/external network to identify new investment opportunities, with specific focus in direct origination, portfolio trades, and liquid opportunities
  • Act as a key design partner in formalizing the investment process and return parameters, enabling the team to provide holistic solutions to the market
  • Source, originate, negotiate, underwrite and structure bespoke real estate transactions
  • Contribute to the portfolio construction and management of Apollo’s opportunistic real estate credit strategy

Qualifications & Experience

  • Bachelor’s degree from a leading college
  • 8-12 years of relevant investing experience within a real estate fund, investment bank, direct lending, hedge fund or private equity firm
  • Proven experience engaging and negotiating with issuers to originate and structure credit investments including senior debt, mezzanine debt and preferred equity
  • Experience creating hybrid transaction structures with real estate as collateral
  • Real estate investing experience required, but candidates do not need to be real estate specialists or necessarily career real estate investors
  • Exceptional communication and networking skills, as well as a keen attention to detail
  • Team player with the ability to thrive independently on a small entrepreneurial team

Our Purpose & Core Values

Our clients rely on our investment acumen to help secure their future. We must never lose our focus and determination to be the best investors and most trusted partners on their behalf. We strive to be:

The leading provider of retirement income solutions to institutions, companies, and individuals.

The leading provider of capital solutions to companies. Our breadth and scale enable us to deliver capital for even the largest projects – and our small firm mindset ensures we will be a thoughtful and dedicated partner to these organizations. We are committed to helping them build stronger businesses.

A leading contributor to addressing some of the biggest issues facing the world today – such as energy transition, accelerating the adoption of new technologies, and social impact – where innovative approaches to investing can make a positive difference.

We are building a unique firm of extraordinary colleagues who:

  • Outperform expectations
