Since KKR’s inception in 1976, we have developed into a global investment firm. We have expanded our capabilities from our core private equity franchise to complementary businesses that build on our knowledge, relationships, and strengths to provide enhanced value to our partners, including our investors, the companies in which we invest, and other key stakeholders.
We have been thoughtful about our organic growth, entering new markets and businesses where we believe they build on our areas of strengths, intellectual capital, and industry relationships and where attractive opportunities exist to further broaden our asset and investor base. Our expanded focus encompasses exciting and growing areas for KKR: energy & infrastructure, real estate, growth equity investments, and a range of debt and public equity investing.
We organize these businesses into three segments: Private Markets, Public Markets, and Capital Markets & Principal Activities.
