KKR: Private Equity Goes Public
Posted by Christine Hurt

In what the WSJ reports could be a trend among successful private equity funds, Kohl Kravis & Roberts today listed an equity fund on the Amsterdam exchange and raised $5 billion in funds.  KKR itself is not publicly-traded, but one if its funds now is.  Now all investors have to ask if there isn't a little corporate raider in all of us, waiting for a chance.

The article reported that the decision to list in Amsterdam was driven by disclosure concerns, but it did not say if the decision was drive by new SOX disclosures or by U.S. securities law disclosures generally.
