KKR’s Real Estate investment business is focused on investing across the capital structure and making control or influence investments in real estate and real estate related transactions where we have a sourcing, information or execution advantage. Since launching a dedicated real estate platform in 2011, KKR has leveraged its balance sheet and committed over $700 million of equity to 11 real estate transactions in the U.S. and Europe. The team consists of 13 dedicated investment professionals who leverage the broader resources of KKR including Private Equity, KKR Asset Management, KKR Capital Markets, and Global Macro and Asset Allocation.
We believe the current market opportunity has the potential to create strong value-driven investment opportunities where KKR seeks to leverage situational complexity for a more attractive basis and excess risk-adjusted returns.
Sourcing, Information, Execution
We specifically target real estate opportunities—including property-level equity, debt, special situations transactions and businesses with significant real estate holdings—that can benefit from KKR’s deep, longstanding global relationships, access to proprietary information, financial structuring and capital markets capabilities and real estate operational expertise. We focus on investment opportunities where we have differentiated insights and/or relationships, and where we believe we can add value. As a leading global investment firm with significant experience in the financial markets, we have the resources and global network of professional relationships to make us a partner of choice.
