KKR & Co. Inc., together with its subsidiaries, is a leading global investment firm that offers alternative asset management and capital markets and insurance solutions. KKR aims to generate attractive investment returns by following a patient and disciplined investment approach, employing world-class people, and supporting growth in its portfolio companies and communities.

KKR’s insurance subsidiaries offer retirement, life and reinsurance products under the management of The Global Atlantic Financial Group.


With more than $165 billion in assets under management, private equity represents the origin of KKR’s 46-year-long history. Based on experience from hundreds of transactions, we constantly strive to identify great businesses and help them unlock the next stage of development. In doing so, our highest priority is to create value for all stakeholders, including our investors and our company’s employees and customers.


A Private Equity Intern in our Frankfurt office will engage in all aspects of the private equity investment process, including: sourcing and evaluating potential investments, presenting opportunities to the broader team, performing due diligence, and implementing value creation opportunities at portfolio companies.

As we generally operate in small teams, interns will play an integral role and obtain significant responsibility from Day 1. As such, the Program is the ideal environment for our Interns to develop a well-rounded investment understanding, supported by a dedicated training and mentorship offering.

The internship will also provide a great opportunity to liaise with teams across all business units of KKR and external market participants (e.g. bankers, advisers).
