The scale of global infrastructure investment demand is enormous. There is a growing need to replace and expand global infrastructure, including all parts of the global energy supply chain as well as public services such as roads, railways, airports, and communications networks. A reduction in traditional public funding sources and weakened economic conditions has created a need for experienced private capital to meet the massive need for global infrastructure investment.
We are committed to helping to meet this imbalance by investing in infrastructure assets on a global basis. Our goal is to achieve returns through the acquisition and operational improvement of infrastructure assets important to the functioning of the economy, while generating current income as well as capital appreciation for investors.
Our approach to infrastructure investing
Disciplined Investment Selection
Infrastructure is a distinct asset class, making asset selection paramount. Therefore, we focus on investments where we believe risk is minimized in order to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns, and we use a risk-based asset selection process to define infrastructure.
Deep Operational Engagement
Our long history of value creation, coupled with our substantial investment in people, processes, and resources to drive operational improvement, positions us to excel in creating value in infrastructure assets.
Active Stakeholder Engagement
The expertise of our Public Affairs group, outside advisors and partnerships with policymakers, organized labor, environmental NGOs, and other interested parties provide a critical and unique tool available to KKR to enhance the long-term value of our infrastructure investments.
