KKR in Asia: A Strategic View

The rise of private equity as a force of change is a recent phenomenon, and its impact has taken regulators, investors, and CEOs by surprise. The explosive growth in these funds and the increasingly substantial size of the corporate targets they pursue have touched off fiery debates as to the causes of the trend, the challenges for regulators, and the implications for minority investors. To shed some light on the industry and its impact on Asia, the Program on Alternative Investments of the Center on Japanese Economy and Business (CJEB) at Columbia Business School hosted a distinguished lecture by Deryck Maughan, chairman of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. Asia. Sir Deryck spoke to an audience of 200 people at Casa Italiana, Columbia University, on February 13, 2007. The event was moderated by Alicia Ogawa, the Program's director. This report highlights Sir Deryck's speech and the discussion with audience members that followed.
