KKR: Private Equity Industry Leader in ESG / Sustainable Investing

November 21, 2017

According to the authoritative Pensions & Investments survey in 2015, the top 10 private equity firms accounted for almost 60% of the total P/E assets under management (US$1.5 trillion) of the largest 50 P/E firms.

Familiar names were in the P&I survey:  Apollo Global Management, Blackstone Group; Carlyle Group; and at #4 position, the Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR) firm with almost $100 billion AUM at that time.

The P/E pioneering KKR firm was established in 1976 by the team of Jerome Kohlberg, Henry Kravis, and George Roberts and quickly became one of the leaders in the P/E field.

One of the most notable of the early transactions was the 1989 leveraged buyout of publicly-traded RJR Nabisco by senior management.

Today, KKR is a global leader in the Private Equity industry; the firm is headquartered in New York City with offices in Europe, South America, and Asia-Pacific.  The firm continues to lead in leveraged buyouts, private equity investment, and growth capital investments.
