|KFE has grown in breadth and scope over the past 36 years, and along the way, we have developed a way of thinking about investment opportunities that is fundamental to the way we do business. There are 3 parts to any deal. An IDEA, MONEY, and the PEOPLE who Make It Happen. And in our view, it is the PEOPLE in our businesses that matter most.
If location, location, location drives success in real estate, it is people, people, people that drives success in business. People who have tremendous passion, and the determination to be the best at what they do. People who are collaborative and fair minded. People who are smart. People who have integrity.
We have learned that building successful businesses requires serving customers with great care, it requires nurturing our people to help them grow to realize their full potential, and it needs dedication to lead change. Because nothing stands still.
We have been very fortunate most of the time. Because we take risks, we have had our share of learning experiences. But overall, our returns compare favorably with some of the best publicly stated returns by private equity firms in Canada.
We are very excited about the many developments taking shape in our businesses and with our people in 2008. We invite you to learn more about us.
