Apollo Investment Strategy

Can someone elaborate on Apollo's investment strategy & approach to uncovering value, beyond the general themes that have been mentioned on this forum (minimize equity check through max leverage; aggressive leverage terms; find companies with good/bad segments, divest the bad ones and enhance the good ones).

Concrete examples are welcome as well. Appreciate any insight.

The book on Cesaers is a good jumping point.

I think Apollo is very different now than what it was then. The aggressive techniques they were famous for are now commonplace: https://www.ft.com/content/6d7e4fb9-672b-4088-a2ef-30807a2358dc
