Our Equity-Management Methodology Emphasizes:

  • Multi-asset diversification:
    • Asset diversification encompasses investment style, asset class, domestic and international, large-, mid- and small-cap stocks along with growth and value styles.
  • market inefficiencies:
    • KIM monitors markets to uncover overlooked securities that KIM believes offers value. These include closed-end funds trading at discounts to their net asset value and exchange-traded funds providing diversification.
  • Efficient trading:
    • KIM employs trading technologies to effect asset purchases and sales. Our goal is to deliver value to your portfolio by selling assets when they reach upper valuation targets or when similar securities can be purchased for better relative values.
