Jim Chanos

President & Founder of Kynikos Associates

Jim Chanos is one of the most legendary investors of all-time. Best known for betting against Enron in 2001, he has also shorted the shares of numerous well-known corporate financial disasters, including Baldwin-United, Commodore International, Coleco, Integrated Resources, Boston Chicken, Sunbeam, Conseco, and Tyco International.

Who is…

  • Chanos opened Kynikos Associates in 1985 to implement investment strategies he had uncovered while beginning his Wall Street career as a financial analyst with Paine Webber, Gilford Securities, and Deutsche Bank.
  • As the largest exclusive short selling investment firm, Kynikos provides investment management services for domestic and offshore clients.
  • Chanos’ investment strategy looks for fundamental failures in market valuation, from underestimated or unreported failings in the business or the market of a particular stock, followed by a substantial short position which he is willing to hold for quite a long time.
  • He is currently a lecturer in finance and a Becton Fellow at the Yale School of Management, where he teaches a class on the history of financial fraud.
