The Antares Advantage


We believe our long-term relationships with 400+ private equity firms and knowledge and experience with hundreds of companies allow Antares to pursue highly attractive deals as they come to market, a cornerstone of our selective sourcing capabilities.


Antares has maintained the #1 U.S. sponsored, syndicated middle market league table position by deal count for the past 13 years. We are repeatedly requested to participate in and lead a majority of the transactions we finance. This allows Antares to directly influence investments and outcomes.LPC league table position Source: Refinitiv LPC for Sponsored Middle Market Transactions as published on January 4, 2023; Middle Market definition: Borrower sales size <=$500M and total loan deal size <=$500M. Rank is by total deal count from 2010-2022. Refinitiv rankings are based on submissions from league table participants in accordance with Refinitiv submission requirements and detailed league table rankings criteria. Pursuant to such criteria, Refinitiv reserves the right to review and determine league table eligibility and challenge validity based on the best information available. Moreover, under the criteria, a deal submitted for league table purposes may be challenged by other firms questioning the accuracy of the data. Antares does not pay a fee for league table consideration. The number of firms considered varies over time based on the Refinitiv criteria which is available from Antares upon request. Note that the rating is not indicative of Antares or Antares Capital Adviser’s future performance.


Antares holds a large portion of each loan we fund on our own balance sheet, driving alignment of interests with investors and co-investors. Working closely with borrowers allows Antares to support ongoing growth financing needs, with two-thirds of Antares’ loan activity annually originating from existing borrowers.
