Global investment firm KKR & Co announced that it has successfully raised $6.4 billion for its fund dedicated to infrastructure and energy-related investments in the Asia Pacific region. This fund is considered the largest pan-regional infrastructure fund raised for the Asia Pacific, emphasising the increasing interest and demand for such investments in the region. KKR mentioned that the fund has received strong support from a diverse group of global investors, including public and corporate pensions, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies, endowment funds, and asset managers.

The fund’s mandate covers various sectors, including renewables, power and utilities, water and wastewater, digital infrastructure, and transportation.
