Founder and Managing Partner of Kynikos Associates

As the largest exclusive short selling investment firm, Kynikos provides investment management services for both domestic and offshore clients.

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 Barron’s as “the market call of the decade, if not the past fifty years.”
