KKR holds $1.1b final close for real estate fund

by Jody Barhanovich

KKR, a leading global investment firm, has held a $1.1 billion final close for KKR Real Estate Credit Opportunity Partners (RECOP). The fund focuses on generating attractive risk-adjusted returns for investors through the purchase of junior tranches of CMBS.

RECOP exceeded its target capital raise and received strong backing from a diverse group of global investors, including public pensions, insurance companies, and family offices.

Earlier this year, KKR negotiated and purchased the first CMBS transaction subject to risk retention.
