Kayne Anderson Rudnick Investment Management, LLC

Kayne Anderson Rudnick (KAR) manages quality-focused equity strategies across investment styles, market caps, and geographies.

Quality at a Reasonable Price

KAR seeks to build high-conviction, low-turnover portfolios of high-quality businesses with enduring competitive advantages, excellent management, and exceptional economics. The KAR investment team employs in-depth fundamental research to identify companies believed to have low business risk as identified by certain financial characteristics—consistent and profitable growth, high returns on capital, strong free cash flow, and little to no debt—and to buy these companies at attractive valuations.

KAR was founded in Los Angeles in 1984 by successful entrepreneurs, Richard Kayne and John Anderson (the benefactor of UCLA’s Anderson School of Management), initially to manage the funds of its principals and clients. Allan Rudnick joined the firm in 1989, marking the start of KAR’s traditional investment management business and high-quality focus that the firm is known for today.
