Our Firm and Impact

For more than 40 years, KKR has delivered strong investment performance. Today, our one-firm approach and culture of innovation provide new solutions in a rapidly evolving investment landscape.

KKR is a leading global investment firm managing $129.6 billion of assets across multiple strategies. Since our founding in 1976, KKR has worked to create shared value for our fund investors, stakeholders, and the companies in which we invest. In today’s complex global economy, we believe success depends on flexibility, the ability to collaborate on opportunities, and the strength to work collectively through challenges.

We seek to work as a collaborative and seamless team across geographies, asset classes, and industry groups attempting to bring the best intellectual capital, investment ideas, and prospects for returns to our clients.

We aim to generate attractive returns by following a patient and disciplined investment approach, employing world-class people, and aligning our interests with our fund investors. We promote operational excellence and drive value creation at the asset level. With deep roots in private equity and diversified capabilities, we have a growing presence in the public and capital markets.

Our approach to responsible investment is no different. We promote operational excellence and strive to make thoughtful management decisions, keeping transparency, engagement, and mutual learning with our partners central to our efforts. We adapt to changes and achieve impact by cultivating strong internal expertise. To augment our own capabilities, we partner with leading external experts who understand a range of market, geopolitical, public policy, reputational, macroeconomic, and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues.
