Private equity giant Kohlberg Kravis Roberts today said that a former Goldman Sachs partner and hedge fund veteran will lead its global real-estate effort.
Ralph Rosenberg will investigate investment opportunities in real estate for KKR's stock, debt and special situations funds. He joins the New York-based firm from Eton Park Capital Management. Prior to Eton Park, he co-founded hedge fund R6 Capital Management, which was acquired by Eton Park in 2007.
Rosenberg worked at Goldman Sachs before leaving to found R6 in 2006; he covered special-situations and global real estate during his time at the bank.
"Ralph brings with him 25 years of experience investing in the real-estate industry," KKR founders Henry Kravis and George Roberts said. "We are very pleased Ralph has decided to join us."
