The 2014 Hedge Fund Rising Stars: Danny Kayne

Kayne joined Albourne Partners in June 2013 and made partner this past April.

Danny Kayne

At age 12, Danny Kayne was diagnosed with bone cancer in his leg, an experience that shaped his life. He’s since been committed to cancer-related causes. In 2005, having just earned an economics degree from Colorado College, the Woodbridge, Connecticut, native spoke at a children’s cancer charity event. A UBS executive was sitting in the audience. That chance encounter led to a job at the Swiss bank, where Kayne became the youngest member of the investment team for UBS’s fund-of-hedge-funds business. He began covering U.S. corporate credit in 2007, just before the global credit crisis. Last June, Kayne, 32, joined the U.S. division of Albourne Partners, a London-based investment consulting firm with $300 billion under advisement, as a senior research analyst. He remains in touch with many of the managers he got to know at UBS during the market collapse. In April, Albourne made Rowayton, Connecticut–based Kayne a partner.
