Hirofumi Hirano, Chief Executive Officer of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR) Japan, speaks during the Reuters Japan Investment Summit in Tokyo May 19, 2014. KKR & Co LP may team up with a Japanese state-backed fund to find buyout targets for its $6 billion Asian fund, a year after the U.S. private equity firm and some rivals complained that state funds could impinge on their investment opportunities. KKR has been in talks with the Innovation Network Corporation of Japan (INCJ) for possible joint investment, Hirano said at the Summit on Monday. REUTERS/Toru Hanai (JAPAN - Tags: BUSINESS) less
