KKR Buzz

The buzz in PE land the past few days has been on KKR's plans to launch a public buyout fund that would be traded on an Amsterdam (Euronext) Exchange.

Here are some interesting articles on the issue:

TheDeal.com
Reuters.com
DealBook
WSJ

Personally, I think it makes sense to pursue retail investors for some of these funds, and its natural for partners to look at the IPO route because they dread the marketing/fund-raising process.
