No big egos, just people that care

Life at KAR

To provide an environment where people thrive and ideas flow, we strive to maintain a culture of accessibility. We don’t have assistants; our doors are actually open; we invite open and honest discussion, debate, and intellectual conversation. We may not always agree, but we will be better in the end for undergoing the scrutiny. There are no big egos here, just people that care about learning and doing great work. We treat each other with respect and we take each other seriously. What We Believe.

Our Awards:

Diversity Equity & Inclusion

At KAR, we strive to do the right thing and maintain a team-oriented culture of accessibility, open and honest communication, and respect.  We encourage an environment of intellectual honesty and believe in empowering and growing our people.

The importance and value of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are embraced at the highest levels of our firm. At KAR, diversity is not just a statistic – it’s the value and ongoing success that our company derives by working alongside people that have differing perspectives and different life experiences. Our firm is run by smart, driven people whose varied backgrounds inform everything we do, from nurturing client relationships to implementing investment strategies.

Jeannine Vanian, COO, talks about KAR’s Corporate Social Responsibility Program and the firm’s long fostered culture of diversity and inclusion in the June 2022 edition of Acclaim Magazine.

KAR has not paid fees to the award sponsor to obtain the award and does not anticipate that it will pay fees to re-license the award. KAR sponsored part of the virtual gala for the awards ceremony, but doing so was not a prerequisite to winning the award.


The Wealth For Good Awards are independently judged based solely on the basis of entrant’s submissions and their response to a number of specific questions, which are answered by focusing on the client experience rather than purely quantitative performance metrics. The awards recognize the very best operators in global wealth management with “independence”, “integrity”, and “genuine insight”, the watchwords of the judging process. While the judging process is completely independent of any commercial arrangements between the participants and the organizers, it is expected that winners have an obligation to work with the organizers to promote their award and this obligation is separate to attendance at an awards ceremony. KAR did not pay any fees to participate in the Wealth For Good Awards; however, KAR did pay fees for an advertisement and article placement after it was notified that it won.
