The KKR ERA platform seeks to take a differentiated approach to investing in the complex and cyclical upstream oil and gas industry by:
Combining creative and customized structures with financial discipline and a strong focus on risk management in an effort to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns throughout cycles;
Focusing on direct ownership and investing based upon asset value rather than going-concern values, which is more typical in traditional energy private equity;
Operating and partnering like an oil and gas company given our technical and financial expertise and capabilities to manage assets; and
Employing a flexible investment mandate to match the appropriate asset type and investment structure based on evolving macro and market environments.
We believe today’s¹ market environment, coupled with our differentiated approach to the industry, presents a prime opportunity for our investment strategy.
