The KKR Energy Real Assets 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 to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns throughout cycles;
Focusing on direct asset ownership and investing based upon asset value rather than going-concern values, which is more typical in traditional energy private equity;
Operating and partnering as an oil and gas company given our technical and financial expertise and capabilities to manage assets in-house; 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’s market environment, coupled with our differentiated approach to the industry, presents a prime opportunity for our investment strategy.
