Managing Director

Alan Ratner, CFA

Alan is a Managing Director at Zelman & Associates. He and his team are responsible for producing all research and financial models for the publicly traded homebuilding and land development companies under coverage, thematic reports covering the single-family for-sale market, as well as the firm’s proprietary homebuilding and land development surveys. He is a CFA charter holder, a member of the New York Society of Security Analysts, and is certified with the Series 7, 24, 63, 86 and 87 licenses.

Prior to the founding of Zelman & Associates, Alan was an associate analyst from 2005 to 2007 at Credit Suisse Group, serving as part of Ivy Zelman’s Equity Research team which has consistently been recognized by Institutional Investor, Greenwich Associates, StarMine and The Wall Street Journal for their industry-leading analysis.

In 2015, Alan became Ivy’s favorite anecdote when he outgrew his 900 square-foot Manhattan apartment and packed up with his family and headed to the suburbs in Westchester. He lives there today with his wife, Jen, and sons, Henry and Max. When he’s not producing high-quality, thought-provoking housing research, you can most likely find him coaching his boys’ little league baseball teams or suffering through another frustrating Mets season.

Alan is a proud graduate of the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan and has recently come to grips with working for a Buckeye.
