Rigorous & Immersive Manager Selection

“A great many managers can tell a compelling story… our job is to make sure it is true, and to determine whether or not it is sustainable.” - Brian Walsh, Senior Managing Director, Research

Client Focused

“A fundamental tenet of our approach to excellence in client service is our commitment to earning our clients’ unadulterated trust. We do this through superior professional conduct, a complete commitment to meeting their unique objectives, and above all responding to concerns. The most practical gift a client can give us is a suggestion.” - David C. Saunders, Founding Managing Director

Comprehensive Transparency

“We believe we have set the bar in terms of transparency best practices in the industry, particularly as it relates to aggregating position-level data from independent sources. The bottom line is you cannot measure what you cannot see.” - David C. Saunders, Founding Managing Director

Portfolio Construction

“What I believe sets K2 apart is the depth of live investment experience the firm’s senior professionals possess, most notably direct hedge fund investing and management of multibillion dollar investment portfolios through various past market cycles.” - Brooks Ritchey, Senior Managing Director, Portfolio Construction

Holistic Approach to Risk Management

“In today’s complex financial universe, K2 believes one needs to work harder than at any time in recent history to truly comprehend and measure risk, aggregating many views and data points so that a real picture – with sharp resolution – emerges.” - R. Kelsey Biggers, Senior Managing Director, Risk Management

Heritage

“I am often asked what is it that clients value most about K2, and ultimately it centers on one thing...our people. Quite simply, K2 is about good people that like what they do, like who they work with, take pride in their accomplishments, and frankly are committed to doing the right thing. To me, this is the essence of K2’s success.” - William A. Douglass III, Founding Managing Director
