KKR Financial Holdings reported $1.8 billion in total shareholder equity for the first six months ended June 30, up from $1.6 billion in the prior six-month period ended Dec. 31, according to an earnings release late Monday.
KKR Financial also reported net investment income of $107.5 million for the second quarter compared to $93.8 million for the first quarter.
Shareholder equity for the second quarter was not provided.
The difference in net income came from gains in corporate debt investments during the quarter. Going forward, KKR Financial's executives expect to continue making natural resource investments as well as credit investments including buying commercial real estate debt from European banks, said CEO William C. Sonneborn, in the earnings call.
