KKR closes USD17bn global infrastructure fund

Global investment firm KKR has held the final closing of KKR Global Infrastructure Investors IV, a USD17 billion fund focused on pursuing global infrastructure investment opportunities with an emphasis on investments in OECD countries in North America and Western Europe.

Consistent with KKR’s risk-based approach to infrastructure investing, the Fund will focus on critical infrastructure investments with low volatility and strong downside protection where KKR believes it can achieve attractive risk-adjusted returns by leveraging its experienced team, risk-based strategy, long track record of operational value creation, and global network of industry experts. The Fund has a broad investment mandate across a number of infrastructure sectors and predominantly pursues assets with strong existing cash flows and attractive reinvestment opportunities for future growth.

The Fund received strong support from a diverse group of both new and existing investors globally, including public and private pension plans, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies, endowments and foundations, private wealth platforms, family offices, high-net-worth individual investors and other institutional investors. KKR will be investing USD1 billion of capital in the Fund alongside these investors through the Firm’s balance sheet, affiliates, and employee commitments.
