Greenhaven Road Capital, in their Q4 2020 Investor Letter said that KKR & Co. Inc. (NYSE: KKR) is part of their top 5 holdings. KKR & Co. Inc. is a global investment company that currently has a $22.1 billion market cap. For the past 3 months, KKR delivered an 11.13% return and settled at $38.95 per share at the closing of January 29th.
Here is what Greenhaven Road Capital has to say about KKR & Co. Inc. in their investor letter:
“In 2021, KKR will close on their purchase of General Atlantic insurance company, substantially increasing their permanent capital from 9% to 33% of AUM. 2021 should also see continued asset growth as they are in fundraising mode for their three largest strategies. Historically, KKR has been excluded from the S&P 500 for governance reasons but the company will likely make changes to qualify for inclusion, which would bring a large forced buyer to the stock. With its ballast of stable, locked-up management fees, KKR is designed to survive market fluctuations and economic cycles. The desire for pension funds and endowments to have a path to 8% returns in a zero-interest rate world should drive continued demand for KKR’s services. Quite frankly, I believe that 2022, 2023, and 2024 look rosy for KKR as well. “
