Since 2009 K&A has partnered with Virgo Investment Group, a thematic investor focused on building meaningful businesses. Virgo creates or builds asset-based platforms and executes corporate, structured equity partnerships. Including co-investment, Virgo has raised over $1.7 billion, completing 58 investments to date.
In keeping with its philosophy of using capital to transform both earnings as well as market perspectives of value, Virgo invested in Ygrene, a market innovator and the leading, multi-state provider of residential, multifamily and commercial property assessed clean energy financing (“PACE”). When the company faced significant challenges from the top, down, Virgo called on K&A to make early, high-impact talent decisions to address the deficits in its leadership team and develop a lasting succession plan.
