KKR eyes $20bn for North American PE fund

Private investment major KKR & Co is gearing up to secure approximately $20bn from investors for its latest flagship North America private equity fund, North America Fund XIV, according to a report by Reuters. 

According to Reuters’s sources, KKR commenced its investor outreach earlier this month. The firm aims to achieve a net internal rate of return in the high-teens percentage range and plans to deploy capital steadily at a rate of 20% to 25% annually. 

Concurrently, KKR’s stock showed a 1.2% increase to $110.24 in early morning trading on Monday. 

 The firm’s previous North American private equity fund, fully deployed since its 2017 launch, boasted a net IRR of 20.5% as of the end of March, according to regulatory filings. 

As of 31 March, KKR manages assets totaling $578bn.
