Thematic approach to portfolio construction

KKR allocates capital across infrastructure assets and sectors using a risk-based and value creation-oriented approach, which has helped KKR identify three long-term trends that KKR believes provides a compelling opportunity today.


Data is the fastest growing commodity in the world with global IP traffic expected to increase by 26% CAGR1


We believe there is tremendous opportunity to reduce the carbon intensity of traditional fossil fuel energy Infrastructure


Industrials and corporates seek to create financial value and operational efficiency by divesting non-core assets
