A strong company built on a unique heritage
Global Atlantic was founded at Goldman Sachs in 2004 and separated as an independent, privately held company in 2013. In February 2021, KKR acquired a majority ownership stake in Global Atlantic, which operates as a subsidiary and standalone business. Its success is driven by a unique heritage that combines deep product and distribution knowledge with leading investment and risk management capabilities, alongside a strong financial foundation.
