Lo interesante es que muchas de estas compañías cotizan en bolsa y luego de las caídas del pasado marzo varias de ellas cotizan con fuerte descuento. No es raro que en la cartera de grandes fondos hayan aparecido estas compañías como principales posiciones. 

Os dejo un análisis de KKR

KKR (KKR): KKR is well positioned to benefit from the pandemic in the longer term. The firm has in excess of $160B of fee-paying capital that is “locked up” and will continue to pay fees through the slow down. KKR can also call an additional $60B of capital (dry powder) from LPs to further increase management fee income, and the pandemic will likely improve the returns for capital deployed during this period. KKR should also be a beneficiary on the fundraising side since private equity is the most credible path to 8% annual returns with interest rates hovering around 0% and the losses recently seen in the public equity markets.

Our returns from holding KKR will have four drivers: The balance sheet investments, management fees, incentive fees, and capital market fees. Given that the vast majority of KKR’s balance sheet is invested in KKR funds, there will certainly be a mark down for the most recent quarter. As a point of reference, KKR’s 2018 decline in investments was approximately half that of the Russell 2000. In the short-term, the firm’s balance sheet has likely taken a hit on the order of $3+ per share. The losses may be reversed if and when the world recovers. 

The second  driver of returns, which will certainly take a short- or medium-term hit, are the incentive fees. In early March, KKR announced that their realized monetizations would total approximately $500M in Q1. Given the breadth and diversity of KKR funds across geographies and asset classes, while incentive fees will decline, it is unlikely that they will disappear entirely. Fortunately, employees own more than 40% of the equity and the compensation structure at KKR has a large variable component, such that as incentive fees ebb and flow, expenses do as well. Private equity remains one of the best business models in the world and KKR remains one of the best positioned to take advantage of the growth. The strong balance sheet, high insider ownership, and 40-year track record all remain in place. They will be investing mountains of capital at distressed prices. KKR is built to withstand just about anything, including a pandemic.

Visión sobre KKR de Alphyn Capital Management

KKR is one of the preeminent private equity managers. The business model is quite simply to use both their balance sheet ($16bn) and client funds ($218bn in AUM) to buy companies/assets, grow their value through a combination of operational improvement and financial engineering, and sell at a premium. In this way KKR earns management fees on fee-paying AUM (a recurring earning stream, especially on capital locked in for 8+years), earns performance fees based on the rates of return generated, and grows the value of its balance sheet. Despite its size, KKR still has plenty of room to grow earnings as it scales relatively new strategies, such as in real estate, healthcare, energy, and hedge funds, by a factor of 4-5x over the next decade, and then harvest performance fees as the strategies mature. 
Current conditions will certainly impact KKR’s portfolio companies, especially given their liberal use of debt. I expect it to leverage its in-house full service Capital Markets division, which has raised cumulatively approx. $1tr in equity and debit for both KKR companies an external clients since inception in 2007, and political access to find creative financing solutions. As point of reference, businesses backed by the private equity industry employ more than 8.8 million Americans at over 35,000 companies, accounting for 5% of the United States’ GDP. 7 This gives the industry significant clout, perhaps explaining why it is lobbying to have access to the $377 billion of small business loans and grants baked into the U.S.'s $2 trillion coronavirus relief bill. 8 As of year end 2019, KKR could reasonably be valued at ~$35 per share, by adding the balance sheet value of $19.26 per share to the KKR fee generating business value of $16 per share ($1.67 per share in after tax distributable earnings valued at a reasonable 10x). Even allowing for significant write downs to the portfolio in the next couple of quarters given market conditions, KKR is priced with a margin of safety in the low $20’s where we bought the shares.

Son todas muy buenas firmas y conocidas.


Re: Invirtiendo en Private Equity

Se podría añadir Brookfield Asset Management, es un gigante con 500 billones de dólares en activos gestionados. El precio de su acción lo ha hecho muy bien pero tienen una estructura muy difícil de comprender y mucha deuda. También se puede invertir en sus filiales de gestión de infraestructuras o real estate, además de en algunos de sus fondos que cotizan. Eso sí, no es private equity al uso enfocado a empresas de cualquier sector, sino que se especializan más en infraestructuras o real estate, donde los retornos son más bajos.


KKR adquiere Global Atlantic

Aquí el comunicado

NEW YORK & HAMILTON, Bermuda--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KKR & Co. Inc. (NYSE: KKR) and Global Atlantic Financial Group Limited (“Global Atlantic”) today announced the signing of a strategic transaction where KKR will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Global Atlantic, a leading retirement and life insurance company. After closing, Global Atlantic will continue to operate as a separate business with its existing brands and management team.

Global Atlantic serves more than two million policyholders through its retirement and life insurance products. It is one of the largest fixed rate and fixed indexed annuity providers in the United States, offering annuities for individuals through a network of banks, broker-dealers, and insurance agencies as well as life insurance for individuals and corporates. Global Atlantic is also a leader in the institutional channel, providing customized reinsurance solutions to its life and annuity company clients.

“We are thrilled to have a new, long-term partner in KKR,” said Allan Levine, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Global Atlantic. “With its global presence, investment acumen and long-term focus, we believe we will be even better positioned – financially and strategically – both to help Americans address the financial challenges they face today and to help our institutional channel clients achieve their strategic, risk, and capital management goals.”

“This is a transformative event for KKR,” said Henry Kravis and George Roberts, Co-Chairmen and Co-Chief Executive Officers of KKR. “Global Atlantic is a best-in-class business with a like-minded entrepreneurial management team. Our businesses are complementary and our partnership will benefit all of our collective stakeholders.”

Joseph Bae and Scott Nuttall, Co-Presidents and Co-Chief Operating Officers of KKR, added: "This transaction is highly strategic for KKR — it meaningfully expands our base of permanent capital, further diversifies and scales our business, and significantly grows our position within the insurance industry, which has been increasing its exposure to alternative investment strategies. Insurance providers play a critical role in supporting the financial security for millions of individuals. This transaction positions KKR to support Global Atlantic policyholders through our global network and asset management and origination capabilities.”

Strategic Rationale

  • Best-in-class business with a strong management team. Global Atlantic’s business, focused on attractive, predictable and growing segments of insurance, has delivered industry leading financial results. Adjusted Operating Earnings and Book Value have compounded at annual growth rates of 17% and 16%, respectively, from 2016 to 20191.
  • Global Atlantic policyholders to benefit from KKR’s asset management and origination capabilities. KKR also plans to serve as Global Atlantic’s investment manager subject to receipt of applicable regulatory approvals. Global Atlantic will gain access to KKR’s leading direct origination platforms and asset management capabilities while maintaining its current high-quality bias and investment grade focus.
  • Significant expansion of strategically important growth vertical. The global insurance industry, with over $30 trillion of assets, is a key strategic focus for KKR. The acquisition of Global Atlantic represents a significant and natural extension of KKR’s existing insurance business, which includes managing $26 billion of assets on behalf of insurance companies across our strategies and products.
  • Significantly increases permanency of assets under management (AUM). Pro forma for the transaction, as of March 31, 2020, KKR’s AUM would increase from $207 billion to $279 billion. Additionally, permanent capital as a percentage of KKR’s total AUM would increase from 9% to 33%, and permanent capital, together with our long-term strategic investor partnership capital, would represent 42% of KKR’s AUM.
  • Enhances book value compounding opportunity. Global Atlantic’s strong track record and potential for continued book value growth will further KKR’s focus on building, growing and compounding its permanent capital base on behalf of its shareholders.
  • A platform for continued growth. Global Atlantic has a history of innovation and growth, including expanding through mergers and acquisitions – a track record that will be increasingly valuable in the rapidly consolidating life and annuity industry.

  • Accretive to KKR shareholders across key metrics. In the first year post closing, the transaction is expected to be accretive to KKR shareholders on an AUM, FPAUM, Book Value, Fee Related Earnings and After-tax Distributable Earnings per Adjusted share basis.
Key Transaction Terms

Under the terms of the agreement, KKR will pay Global Atlantic shareholders an amount equal to 1.0x Global Atlantic’s Book Value as of the date of closing, subject to an equity roll-over for certain existing shareholders. As of March 31, 2020, Global Atlantic’s Book Value was approximately $4.4 billion. KKR expects to fund the acquisition, net of equity roll-over participation, from a combination of cash on hand, proceeds from potential minority co-investors and the issuance of new debt and/or equity by KKR.

The investment in Global Atlantic will be held on KKR’s balance sheet and through a proprietary vehicle established for others to invest alongside KKR’s balance sheet, not in any client funds.

Upon close, Global Atlantic will continue to be run by its existing senior leadership team led by Allan Levine, Global Atlantic’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

The transaction, which is expected to close in early 2021, is subject to required regulatory approvals and certain other customary closing conditions.

KKR was advised by Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP and Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP. Debevoise & Plimpton LLP acted as legal advisor to Global Atlantic
