Who we are

'Passionate, disciplined, and collaborative' best describe the team at River Road.

From our home in Louisville, KY, our experienced professionals practice a style of investing we call Absolute Value®. For more than 25 years, this proprietary approach has sought to identify well-managed companies with predictable cash flows trading at an attractive discount to their assessed intrinsic value. Meticulous and obsessed with our craft, we remain committed to the spirit of innovation and continuous improvement that we believe has made River Road one of the leading, boutique value investors in the world.
