Overview of Kayne Partners Fund:
Kayne Partners Fund (KPF), the dedicated growth equity team of Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors, LP (KACALP), focuses on investing in technology and technology-enabled companies ($10-$100 million in revenue) that have demonstrated impressive growth and are run by experienced management teams. By infusing capital into businesses, KPF has a track record of helping management teams transform their businesses into market leaders. Our investment size usually ranges from $10 million to $75 million in privately held, North American companies.
The Fund’s systematic direct-sourcing strategy enables our team to develop long-term relationships with potential portfolio companies, prior to the stage when they would typically seek growth capital. This approach allows us to track company performance and identify key catalysts for growth, at a crucial inflection point in the company’s trajectory. Investments are most often used to finance working capital, expand geographically, develop infrastructure, expand sales and marketing efforts, invest in R&D, or fund acquisitions. As a growth stage investor, KPF leverages its internal capabilities, a broader strategic operator network and key vendor relationships to drive transformational change within its portfolio companies’ people, processes, and progress.
We value talented people with an aptitude for leadership, and a commitment to excellence. In return, the firm is proud to provide a positive, entrepreneurial, success oriented environment, as well as a competitive compensation and benefits package, including: breakfast and lunch served daily in the office by the firm’s talented in-house chef, an in-office gym, and monthly social outings with the entire team. Working as a Summer Analyst at Kayne is a great way to jump start your career in private equity directly out of undergraduate by doing work that is meaningful in the investment process. KPF is currently investing out of Kayne Partners Fund IV, a $385 million fund and will be going to market to raise a $600-800 million Kayne Partners Fund V with a five-year investment period in the first half of 2020.
KPF is located at the KACALP headquarters in Los Angeles and has been part of the organization for over a decade. KACALP is an alternative asset manager founded in 1984 currently managing over $30 billion (as of 6/30/19) in investments across Energy, Growth Private Equity, Real Estate, and Credit.
