Ryan Israel is a 29-year-old partner at Pershing Square Capital Management. He came to the firm from Goldman Sachs, where he worked as an investment banker and has an economics degree from the Wharton School. Ryan works under Bill Ackman, a man famous for hiring anyone he thinks can get the job done, regardless of education or age.
The two investors share a love for Warren Buffett’s investing style, and Israel was instrumental in the hedge fund’s investment in Burger King and subsequent takeover of Tim Horton’s as a tax-saving strategy.
