Leading fiduciaries around the world — including large public pension plans and agencies, corporate pension plans, financial institutions, family offices, insurance companies, endowments, foundations and funds-of-funds — have for decades invested with KKR as limited partners. We offer limited partners investment opportunities in private equity funds, credit-oriented funds, and newer initiatives such as Energy & Infrastructure.
KKR takes great pride in the fact that our investments have generated strong returns for our investment partners across various economic cycles. By improving the funding ratio of many pension plans, these returns have helped to satisfy employers’ required annual contributions, improving the retirement security of teachers, firefighters, police officers, state and municipal employees, and many others.
Since KKR was founded, our executives have invested nearly $1.9 billion of their own personal funds alongside the commitments of the firm’s limited partners (as of September 30, 2012). This is a demonstration not only of KKR’s founding principle of partnership, but also of consistent alignment between our own interests and those of our investors.
