KKR Financial Holdings' CEO Hosts Analyst Day (Transcript)

You don't just necessarily follow a macro trend, but fine is there is an imbalance, is there a dislocation in a capital market that we can take advantage of by doing the kind of in depth work that the people at KFN do and over and over again we find numerous opportunities in the whole area of capital imbalances.

The good thing about it also as the world is becoming more and more global, we almost don't care where those ideas come from. If it is a good idea, get on a plane, we are going to go find it and work on it and we have people that can certainly help. So in short, all of us at KKR all of us at KFN are focused on one thing.

And that is to get you the best returns that we possibly can by deploying capital where we have the highest conviction that those are the areas for good returns that you are going to hear today for example us talk about our commercial real estate opportunities, you are going to hear us talk about our commercial real estate opportunities. You're going to hear us talk about our natural resources, our special situations, our high yield and our other areas and these are areas that we are very high on at KFN and also very high on at KKR.

So, I am going to turn it over to my partner, Bill Sonneborn, but before I do, let me just tell you how proud that George Roberts and I are of this team. The team is an incredible team and headed by Bill Sonneborn, Mike McFerran, you're going to hear from today, Fred Goltz, you will also hear from today and people that are on the trading desk.

We have created an incredible team of people that have developed awfully good record and we're going to continue focusing on that. We're going to continue doing everything we can to make sure that record stays intact. So with that, let me turn it over to my partner, Bill Sonneborn.
