Overview

When your business is private equity, one of your most precious assets is email. So it goes with New York City-based Kelso & Company, a recognized leader in the field.

The firm has built a successful investment track record over the past 30 years, raising a total of eight private equity funds with commitments in excess of $9.8 billion. During that time, the Kelso funds have made over 110 investments, including more than 90 which have been exited.

Private equity is a business of critical moments. Strategic investments and large transactions can turn on a rapid sequence of interactions. Should an important message be lost or other forms of data become inaccessible, multi-million dollar deals can evaporate. When others are aggressively competing for equity stakes, any misstep can knock you out of contention.
