KERN Partners

KERN was established in 2000 with a vision of building a firm of professionalism, integrity and discretion.

At its inception, the Firm provided strategy-driven mergers and capital markets advice, and was involved in two of the three largest corporate M&A transactions and one of the largest Energy Trust mergers in the history of the Canadian energy sector.

In 2003, KERN transitioned into private equity with the establishment of its first fund, KERN Energy Partners I Fund (KEP I), which achieved total commitments of $230 million.

KERN Energy Partners II Fund (KEP II) closed in 2006 with total commitments of $450 million.

KERN Energy Partners III Fund (KEP III) achieved a first close in October 2008.

KEP I, KEP II and KEP III are funded by a group of leading North American university endowments, pension funds, foundations, institutions and family offices. Through an active co-investment program with these Limited Partners, the funds have the ability to develop and present investment commitments well beyond their capital base.

Their dedicated private equity team consists of 18 professionals. The General Partners of the Firm each have close to 30 years of North American and Global energy sector experience. The broader team of professionals brings a wide range of experience in upstream oil and gas, energy infrastructure, energy technology and the oil and gas service sector. Their professionals are well educated with diverse backgrounds, enabling them to blend varied perspectives with specialized industry knowledge to investment decisions.
