The 10th Annual Spanish Venture Capital & Private Equity Awards, organized by The Spanish Private Equity Association (ASCRI), Deloitte and IESE Business School, were celebrated in Madrid, Spain on July 5, 2017. During the event, KKR was honored to be recognized as the Best International Firm, based on its investments in Private Equity, Infrastructure, Special Situations and Direct Lending over the prior six years.
Alejo Vidal-Quadras, Director at KKR’s Madrid office, accepted the award on KKR’s behalf and is quoted as saying, “[the award] was recognition of KKR’s support to Spanish companies, which is reflected through the more than USD 4.6 billion the firm has invested in Spain since 2011. Spain is the country in Europe in which KKR has invested the most from 2011-2017, and has a willingness to continue doing so. This highlights the strategic importance Spain has for our firm.”
