Expertise in Creating Value
Our strategic approach to developing businesses and creating value for our private equity investors begins the day we identify a potential investment and continues through to our exit.
We create value through:
Active and Expert Involvement
We actively advise management teams in formulating plans to drive growth. This often includes leveraging our industry knowledge, accessing our wide network of resources, including our Senior Advisors, and assisting in the recruitment of seasoned operating executives.
We provide management with additional operational expertise and resources we believe will create lasting value. One of our key levers in driving operational improvement is KKR Capstone, a team of operating professionals with extensive industry and functional expertise.
Supporting Long-Term Growth Plans
Our investment approach is predicated on helping companies deliver growth over the long term. We are patient investors, and we encourage our portfolio companies to invest in future competitiveness, improve operating efficiencies, make strategic acquisitions, and incentivize employees by giving them ownership in the business.
Innovative Financing Techniques
We work to create innovative financing structures that give us a competitive advantage in winning transactions that offer ongoing flexibility to our portfolio companies. To assist us in this regard, we created KKR Capital Markets to provide our portfolio companies with tailored capital markets counsel.
Partnering with Management
We seek to partner with experienced managers whose interests are aligned with those of our investors. We believe that by building a trusted partnership with our portfolio companies, we can help achieve long-term, sustainable growth for investors, the portfolio company, and its stakeholders.
