Film financier Ryan Kavanaugh was born in the United States in 1974. He co-founded Relativity Media and served as its CEO, arranging partnerships between Wall Street financiers and significant film studios. He claimed that Relativity Media’s initial success was due to his risk-assessment algorithm. He resigned as CEO of Relativity Media after the company declared bankruptcy and was the target of numerous management-related litigation. Later, he established Proxima Media, which bought the majority of Triller. His business strategy, which is based on a modified version of the Monte Carlo approach, is intended to estimate the likelihood that a particular movie would be profitable. Hollywood quickly adopted this technique, which fundamentally altered the nature of media and the way films were made.
