George Roberts: Company VisionKKR Co-Chairman and Co-CEO George Roberts discusses how the company vision permeates the firm’s culture and values. August 28, 2014.
KKR is a leading global investment firm that manages investments across multiple asset classes including private equity, energy, infrastructure, real estate, capital markets, credit strategies, and hedge funds.
As investors with an industrialist vision, we aim to generate attractive investment returns by following a patient and disciplined approach, employing high-quality people, pursuing the highest standards of excellence, and aligning our interests with those of all our investment partners.
In addition, KKR Capital Markets supports our firm, portfolio companies, and clients by providing tailored capital markets advice and developing and implementing both traditional and nontraditional capital markets solutions for investments and companies seeking financing.
Our balance sheet is an extraordinary asset and provides us with the ability to commit significant capital side by side with our fund investors, develop new investment strategies and underwrite investment opportunities. With our own capital invested alongside our partners' capital, our interests are strongly aligned with the companies in which we invest and with the investors in our funds.
When you partner with KKR, you benefit from the breadth and expertise of the entire firm. When appropriate, all of KKR’s businesses work together on behalf of all of the investors in our funds. KKR’s investment partners have access to decades of financial and operational experience, broad regional and industry expertise, insight into global macro and geopolitical trends, and a powerful network of global relationships – both inside and outside of the firm.
Through an integrated approach across our firm, we work closely with the investors in our funds to provide innovative financial solutions and investment vehicles that best fit their respective needs. With offices around the world, we fulfill our mission one investor at a time, one company at a time—and we do this as one global firm.
