Current Endeavors and Background

 

Where are you from originally? Where do you reside now?

 

I'm originally from New York, but I currently live in Los Angeles, California. I moved here about 9 years ago by way of the Cayman Islands where I lived/worked for 5 years.

 

What is your current role and focus relative to alternative investments? 

 

I am the CEO and Founder of Ievers Consulting. I deliver technology consulting and implementation solutions to the investment industry, drawing on experience across the entire Hedge Fund operations ecosystem -- from trading, portfolio management to accounting, compliance, treasury, technology, third party integration and applications. pow

 

What are you passionate about?

 

To put it simply. I’m passionate about delivering the best solutions for my clients and creating long term relationships. Being in the industry for over 20 years, with 8 years on the Buy Side I bring a deep level of “insider knowledge” that allows me to deliver practical yet custom solutions.


What do you find most rewarding about your career?

  

Since starting Ievers Consulting, I’ve followed my entrepreneurial dream which has been the most rewarding feeling in my career. I can now approach each engagement with the highest level of integrity and expertise that I struggled to find when holding technology leadership positions while on the buy side and fund administration world.


CalALTs Leadership

 

When did you join CalALTs and how did you get actively involved?

 

I joined CalALTs in October of 2019, which was one of my top “orders of business” when starting my consulting practice. I  immediately began attending the Cal Alt events and seminars. Most recently I presented and am contributing to an upcoming thought leadership white paper. I am working with some very impressive European-based CalALTs members on this paper!

 

What do you value most about CalALTs?

 

The both tremendous and educational networking events/opportunities. CalALTs has an extremely impressive membership base.

Advice for Young Professionals 

 

What advice do you have for young people getting started in the biz?

 

This is a great industry with lots of opportunities where great success can be achieved. Stay the path, hold your values close, and always show dedication and integrity. Network and maintain relationships every chance you get and always keep in mind it’s not who you know, but rather who knows YOU. Make every effort to leave a lasting positive impact.

 

Fun Fact to Share 

 

What else are you passionate about personally?

 

During my free time, I play in an indoor soccer league and volunteer in my community through my church - but the most rewarding volunteer activity has been the many years I’ve coached my daughters soccer team. Having said that, my greatest pride and passion are my wife and 2 beautiful daughters.
