KKR’s Global Capital Leader – Scott Nuttall

The creation of a “very depressing spreadsheet” of missed opportunities prompted the senior leadership of KKR to expand beyond the firm’s private equity stronghold, according to Scott Nuttall, Head of Global Capital and Asset Management Group for the firm.

In a wide-ranging interview with Privcap, Nuttall sheds new light on the impetus for KKR to transform itself from a private equity-only powerhouse into a multi-asset class, global financial services competitor. For example, KKR’s desire for “the ability to say yes” to credit opportunities led to the establishment of a credit business, followed by real estate, hedge funds, energy and infrastructure and other relatively young divisions. Nuttall also responds to concerns of misalignment between the firm’s private LPs and public shareholders, analyzes the supply/demand imbalance in the global energy and infrastructure markets, describes the firm’s “measured” approach to Brazil, gives his view on the economic recovery through the lens of the private equity portfolio companies, and lauds Asia as a relatively aggressive growth opportunity.
