Ares Dynamic Credit Allocation Fund has invested all of the proceeds received at the closing of its initial public offering on November 30, 2012. As of December 31, 2012, the Fund's investments were comprised approximately as follows: 50% in senior secured bank loans, 45% in high yield bonds and 5% in investment grade debt securities of collateralized loan obligations ("CLOs"). As the Fund continues to ramp, it expects, assuming normal market conditions, the asset breakdown to move toward the Fund's initial targeted asset allocation of approximately 40% in senior secured bank loans, 45% in high yield bonds and 15% in CLOs.
In addition, on January 3, 2013, Ares Dynamic Credit Allocation Fund entered into a $150 million revolving funding facility with an institutional lender, pursuant to which the Fund expects to borrow funds to make additional investments, subject to available collateral.

"While we recognize that many investors—including ourselves—are concerned about the overall level of growth of the U.S. economy, we are comforted by the strength of the Ares platform and view this as a significant advantage in the bottom-up credit analysis performed on our existing portfolio and future investments."
