ATRS confirms $25m follow up commitment

The US pension has increased its prior commitment to KKR's open-ended fund.

Institution: Arkansas Teacher Retirement System
Headquarters: Little Rock, US
AUM: $21.78 billion
Allocation to alternatives: 21.8%

Arkansas Teacher Retirement System has confirmed $25 million commitment to KKR‘s open-ended fund, according to materials from the pension’s April board meeting.

The investor committed to KKR Diversified Core Infrastructure Fund (open-ended). In October 2021, the pension doubled its initial $50 million commitment to the fund. The pension therefore has invested $125 million to KKR’s fund to date.

The $21.8 billion US public pension has a 1.6 percent current allocation to infrastructure and tends to target global vehicles pursuing unlisted equity strategies.
