Our Value Oriented Approach
KAR’s investment philosophy maintains a long-term macroeconomic view from start to finish. This philosophy enables KAR to benefit from optionality when deciding to exit an investment. KAR is able to hold its portfolio through up and down cycles and time exit strategies accordingly.
The disciplined approach to our investment philosophy spans ground-up development and repositioning in assets and markets where there is significant value-add potential with limited downside risk.
