As the largest exclusive short selling investment firm, Kynikos provides investment management services for both domestic and offshore clients. Chanos opened Kynikos Associates in 1985 to implement investment strategies he had uncovered while beginning his Wall Street carreer as a financial analyst with Paine Webber, Gilford Securities and Deutsche Bank. Throughout his investment career, Chanos has identified and sold short the shares of numerous well-known corporate financial disasters. His celebrated short-sale of Enron shares was recently dubbed by Barrons as the market call of the decade, if not the past fifty years.
