    The Raine Group is a global merchant bank focused exclusively on the digital, media and entertainment, and sports and lifestyle sectors. The firm was founded by industry veterans Joe Ravitch and Jeff Sine, in partnership with WME Entertainment, a leading talent agency, in 2009. The team includes over 50 professionals across four offices with deep sector-specific relationships and experience. Raine manages a growth-focused private equity fund, with current assets under management of $500 million, and invests exclusively in digital, media & entertainment and sports & lifestyle companies. While Raine's average investment size is expected to be in the $40-80 million range, the firm has the ability to deploy capital from the fund in amounts ranging from as small as $5 million or, through its network of co-investors, as large as several hundred million dollars.
