Hedge Fund Manager And Biden Advisor Is Shorting Uber On Coming Regulatory Pressures (Moguldom.com)
Renowned shortseller Jim Chanos’ funds made almost $100 million by shorting German payments company Wirecard ahead of its collapse. The company filed for bankruptcy after a five-year Financial Times investigation into its accounting practices. A giant in the global hedge fund industry, Chanos is president and founder of New York-based Kynikos Associates, named after the ancient Greek word for “cynic”. His pitch is that he can identify corporate disasters-in-the-making, Harriet Agnew wrote for Financial Times. His 20 employees manage $1.5 billon in assets. Chanos also teaches a course on the history of financial fraud dating back to the 17th century (“how to detect it, not how to commit it”) at his alma mater, Yale University. And this right now is “the golden age of fraud”, Chanos told FT.
