KKR Global Institute

The World of Opportunities and Risks

David Petraeus and Vance Serchuk introduce the KKR Global Institute and discuss global opportunities and risks. January 6, 2014.

The KKR Global Institute (KGI) is an integral part of the KKR investment process — working in partnership with KKR deal teams, portfolio companies, and limited partners to help enable smarter investing through a better understanding of the world.

To accomplish its mission, KGI integrates expertise and analysis about emerging developments and long-term trends in geopolitics, macroeconomics, demographics, energy and natural resource markets, technology, and trade policy, as well as environmental, social, and government (ESG) considerations. Whether working with a KKR deal team as we explore entering a new market, supporting a KKR portfolio company as it expands its international footprint, or assessing which countries stand the best chance of becoming the next “breakout nations,” KGI provides critical inputs as the firm thinks through where to invest and how to help businesses grow.

In order to identify and cultivate over-the-horizon opportunities while mitigating against risks, KGI draws from both a deep bench of in-house experience and knowledge, as well as a differentiated network of global contacts. Under General (Ret.) David Petraeus as Chairman and Vance Serchuk as Executive Director, KGI integrates the macroeconomic analyses of KKR’s Global Macro and Asset Allocation Team led by Henry McVey and the Public Policy & Public Affairs, stakeholder engagement, and environmental, social, and governance work of KKR’s Global Public Affairs Team led by Ken Mehlman.

In addition to supporting the KKR investment process, KGI serves as a platform for thought leadership, publishing analyses on a range of market-relevant developments and subjects, including Henry McVey’s Global Insights and other publications.
