KSL Capital Partners is dedicated to investing in travel and leisure businesses. Since 2005, KSL has raised four private equity funds and two credit funds with approximately $9 billion in equity commitments. Our investments range across travel and leisure businesses, such as hotels and resorts, clubs, fitness, family entertainment, skiing and resort real estate.

With offices in Denver, Colorado; Stamford, Connecticut; and London, England, KSL has the breadth of experience to back strong management teams and support borrowers to expand and grow their businesses.

In our equity portfolio, our Investment Professionals and Strategic Operating Team work collaboratively with a company's management team to formulate and execute a clear business plan.  Our goal is to first organically increase cash flow, while strategically looking at growth opportunities through development, ancillary revenue and, where appropriate, add-on acquisitions. With a team of professionals that have come together across many disciplines such as operations, finance, development, accounting and law, we employ a hands-on approach to managing and improving our investments.

In our credit portfolio, our dedicated travel and leisure focus enables us to better understand a borrower’s business plan. As a result, we are able to provide loans structured to accommodate the needs of our borrowers across a range of varying situations, from stabilized assets to full repositionings. We are committed to developing strong long-term relationships with our borrowers.
