About Will (From His Website)

In 2016, Will Rhind challenged himself to find a way to do things differently. As a 16-year veteran of the ETF industry with experience working at, building and running, well-established successful ETF businesses, he made a keen observation: investing just isn’t as exciting as it once was.

Will asked himself is how do you bring back that excitement? As an experienced entrepreneur, he decided to answer that question by launching his own ETF company - GraniteShares was born.

Will’s focus on disrupting the financial industry has taken GraniteShares from an idea to a successful start-up garnering the attention of Bain Capital and other well-known ETF investors who support his passion to create products that will change the way people see investing.

Will spends his time outside of GraniteShares with his wife and three children. He’s on the Board of Directors of the Bath University Foundation, has a passion for classic cars, Manchester United, and travel – especially back to his roots in Aberdeen, Scotland, “The Granite City”.
