KAR — Who We Are and How We Think

Overview of KAR as a Firm

December 17, 2018

“If I had to sum up Kayne Anderson Rudnick in one word, I would use the word ‘quality’.” — Stephen A. Rigali, CFA, KAR Executive Managing Director


KAR was established in the mid-1980s to manage the family capital of John Anderson. Since then, we’ve gone from managing one family’s capital to expanding to family and friends, all the way to today, when we manage assets for public funds, corporations, endowments, foundations and high-net-worth individuals.

We offer investment management services as well as an array of wealth advisory services, including comprehensive financial planning.


We employ a long-term-oriented, quality investment strategy across all of our investment disciplines. To us, quality means that a company has competitive strengths that will allow it to grow and remain successful over time.

Team Approach

The most important asset we have is our people. Our culture is collaborative and respectful. Our team is passionate about setting high standards for themselves and are proud to be part of this organization. We create the client experience as a team, and as a team, we strive to make the best decisions for our clients.
