NEW YORK, Nov. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Apollo (NYSE: APO) today announced that it has closed on $2.4 billion in commitments for the Apollo Accord+ Fund, its commingled multi-asset opportunistic credit offering.

Accord+, a closed-end fund, follows a multi-asset opportunistic credit strategy, investing in Apollo’s highest conviction themes from across its Credit platform.
