What is the world's largest private equity fund?

You are close if you thought it was Blackwell. We do have KKR that is coming up. Lacking the private tally, they are valued at USD 16.5bn.

So what is a private equity fund you may ask?

This refers to the holding of stock in unlisted companies – companies that are not quoted on a stock exchange. It includes forms of venture capital and MBO financing.
