A Consistent, Winning Reputation

Cardinal Capital Management, Inc. was founded in 1992. The company was built on the premise that most investors do not have access to good long term investment alternatives. Since those early days, our team has been driven by a commitment to consistency, discipline, research and an unwavering desire to do what is best for our clients and their families. With approximately $3.5 billion in assets under management and a skilled team of over 80 staff – including 12 CFA charter holders, our approach has been rewarded by a proven track record, and by the growing assets of a large number of private and institutional clients.

Let us show you how.
