KKR is headquartered in New York and has a presence in 23 cities across 4 continents – combining local expertise with a global perspective.

KKR globally manages investments across multiple asset classes, including private equity, infrastructure, real estate, and credit strategies. In addition, KKR Capital Markets supports our firm, portfolio companies, and clients by providing tailored capital markets advice and financing solutions. KKR Capstone, with a mission to create value for all our stakeholders by identifying and delivering sustainable operational performance within KKR portfolio companies, is also an integral part of the firm’s overall approach to value creation. KKR’s Client Solutions team seeks to diversify KKR’s client base to include new investors across all regions and institution types, including a growing focus on individual, private wealth investors.

KKR first established its presence in Asia Pacific in 2005.

KKR has approximately 300 executives working across business functions and asset classes with offices located in Beijing, Gurugram, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo. While nearly all executives are local to their market – and are adept at proprietary sourcing, relationship building, and best practices considerations within their markets – each closely collaborates with KKR’s team worldwide to leverage the firm’s experience and expertise.

KKR has a very collaborative culture where an individual’s success is the result of good skills and acumen in the role and ability to leverage the whole firm.  They think in terms of “we”, not “I” and we know we are better together than one single person – no matter how skilled that person is. One firm, collaboration, operating with “like and trust” are core to how KKR operates. The person who joins in this role is joining China Private Equity team but also a team of 2,500 people across the firm and we all work together to support each other in delivering the best of KKR to our companies and clients.
