Our Principal Activities business was formed as a result of our combination with KKR Private Equity Investors L.P. As of June 30, 2012, KKR and its executives have over $5.5 billion invested in, or committed to, our own private equity funds and portfolio companies.
This balance sheet capital is an extraordinary asset and provides us with significant permanent capital to invest behind KKR’s future growth. We are our own largest investor and, since we are also committing a portion of that capital to all of our new strategies, our interests are aligned with our partners in the strongest way possible as we build KKR for the future.
