"Hyung's track record and extensive experience with international and emerging market equities make him a strong addition to our portfolio management team here at KAR."

"KAR has a solid reputation built on 30 years of experience and success in the domestic small cap markets," said Kim. "The firm has carved a niche for itself in the industry, backed by tremendous leadership and portfolio management teams, and I am very excited about the opportunity to build on this strong foundation."
