KKR Makes Piece of PE Fund Available on Public Blockchain

KKR & Co. is making a slice of one of its private-equity funds available on the public blockchain, in the latest bid to expand individual investors’ access to private investment vehicles. 

The buyout firm is partnering with digital-assets specialist Securitize, which will tokenize an interest in the second iteration of KKR Health Care Strategic Growth Fund and make it available on the Avalanche public blockchain, executives from both companies said.
