Finding the right hedge fund programs can be overwhelming: there are many strategies and thousands of managers. The temptation is to make conservative allocations only to the biggest names. That won’t get you where you want to go. You need to make substantial allocations to managers specifically chosen to enhance your portfolio.

I am Ian Rayner, founder of Rayner Gobran LLC. We work with institutional allocators, family offices and wealth managers who want to get more from their hedge fund portfolios. We provide everything you need to make smarter allocations and build better portfolios.

It was obvious from the beginning that Ian had the ability to quickly comprehend complexity and get to the heart of the matter at hand.

He handled whatever we threw at him. On the day he started, we gave him the task of setting up a Cayman Islands CTA trading platform. He had it up and running within six months!

Ian has a substantial mathematics, engineering, and business background, plus he understands the alternatives industry and has structured both onshore and offshore alternative products.

If I was in a position to hire Ian, I would do so even if I didn’t have a specific job for him. That’s how highly I think of him.
