Hedge Fund Super Star Kyle Bass Is Betting The Farm Against China’s Currency

 

Hedge fund managers bet a lot of money because they can. They use other investors’ money and gamble that their assessment of a situation or a change of events is the right one. Kyle Bass, the Dallas-based hedge fund manager, earned his reputation by betting against the house and winning big in 2008. Bass knew enough about the subprime mortgage industry to know it was a house of cards with no foundation. His small investment company, Hayman Capital, was the talk of the investment industry in 2008, but that talk has changed over the last eight years. Bass is on a mission to get his investment mojo back. Bass has placed a large bet against the Chinese yuan. Betting against the Chinese doesn’t sound like a good idea, but once again, Bass believes he has enough information to turn that bet into a fortune for his investors and himself.

 

 

Kyle Bass believes that China’s banking system is in serious trouble because of the bad debt on their books. Chinese banks have been generously granting loans for real estate and retail ventures, and many of those loans can’t be paid back for one reason or another. The banks are sitting on billions of dollars in bad debt, and Bass thinks the Chinese government will have to bail the banks out using a sizable chunk of their massive capital reserves. If that happens, the yuan will lose value against the U.S. dollar and the German mark, and Bass will win billions of dollars. But the Chinese say Bass is wasting his money. They plan to control the value of their currency over the next three years.

 

 

Bass has been wrong before. He was wrong when he backed Argentina when the country defaulted on bonds held by other hedge funds. And he was wrong when he backed General Motors when they put faulty steering mechanisms and airbags in some of their automobiles. He is wrong now by betting against drug companies using the information he is receiving from Erich Spangenberg, a famous patent troll. If he is wrong about the Chinese yuan, Bass, and his hedge fund may be licking their wounds for years.

This is however a false notion since he has been working behind the scenes with the firm’s top management for more than a year before his appointment. This appraised him with the operations of the firm. Besides this, he is a proven business and technology expert, with nearly 30 years of experience.

Dawn of a New Era

While welcoming his successor, DiPietro, expressed his delight at leaving the company in the hands of a trusted and recognized industry leader. He further added that the appointment heralds a fruitful era for the company, its clients and its investors. Mr. Kheradpir’s strategic insight will be crucial to Coriant’s growth. Kheradpir sole focus at the moment is spearheading Coriant’s growth. He has already outlined key strategic areas, which need a massive overhaul. This will help the firm to create a niche for itself in the highly competitive industry.

Kyle Bass Sold The Emperor An Invisible Suit, Then Said He Had No Clothes

Kyle Bass cries wolf, then plays wolf. That’s the easiest way to sum up his approach to finances. Look at Goldman-Sachs and Bear-Kearns. Bass was an executive at Bear-Kearns until he was not. So he went to a journalist and told him that a routine novation between Kearns and Sachs had been refused. The reporter asked an executive on live television a question that implied Goldman-Sachs had lost confidence in Bear-Stearns, which was never the case. As the interview was proceeding, probably at the very same time the question was asked, Goldman-Sachs was issuing an e-mail approving the routine novation. The damage had been done, though, and before the end of the week, Bear-Stearns imploded due to lack of confidence on Wall Street, and was absorbed by J.P. Morgan Chase. All because Kyle Bass let slip some proprietary information that was likely routine to begin with.

Novations work like this: If A equals B, and B equals C, then A equals C. If mortgage-backed securities are worth money, then they can be translated into money, which can then be traded on the stock market. Or, those securities can just be traded. Now the securities in question were built on sub-prime loans which allowed those who didn’t have the finances to pay for their loans, to be approved for these sums of money they couldn’t return. Basically, these mortgages were bags of money with gaping holes in the bottom and coins trailing behind as they were carried from the property to the bank, and Kyle Bass–who had been part of the problem before–suddenly turned on the institution and the house of cards began to fall. Bass predicted a collapse by the end of 2008, and he was right. Shoot, when you drop a vase from a fifty story building, then turn around and say: “It’s going to break when it hits the ground,” you’re not a prophet; you’re conscious.

But Bass uses the fall of greats in order to profit. The Coalition for Affordable Drugs is a group he manages which uses politicking to decrease the prices pharmaceuticals can sell their drugs for, and loses substantial profit for them. When their stock drops, Bass short-sells his holdings. He manipulates the stock market within the bounds of law, and in a way that loses America millions. But then Bass is connected with socialist despot Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, who presides over their home country of Argentina. Though Bass is a hedge-fund manager based out of Texas, it seems very likely his actions on Wall Street are informed by the ideologies which foster his relationship to de Kirchner.

How Coriant Has Evolved Since It Was Founded in 1990

Formally referred to as UT (Übertragungstechnik), Coriant was established by Siemens’ Transmission Technology department located in Munich, Germany in 1990. It was during this time that technology developed from PDH (Plesiochronous Digital Hierarchy) to SDH (Synchronous Digital Hierarchy) in the level of 2.5 Gbit/s (STM-4 / STM-16). Between late 1990s and the beginning of 2000s DWDM was developed to enable a much higher transmission capacity. Also referred to as OTN (optical transport network), this technology involves standardizing a set of multiplex encapsulation hierarchies.

On the 6th of May 2013; it acquired its independence from Nokia Siemens Networks under the leadership of Marlin Equity Partners. This technology is the brainchild of NSN ON (Siemens Optical Networks), Sycamore and Tellabs Networks. However, it was later announced that Coriant would merge with Sycamore and the company be renamed Coriant America Inc. The same year in December, Marlin Equity revealed merger plans between Coriant and Tellabs which would then see its name change to Coriant.

Coriant deals in both software and hardware used by mobile, voice and data networks for optical transmission. These products include hiT 7300 for optically multiplexing DWDM above fibre cables (optic), hiT 70xx used multi servicing and hiT 7100 for optical paths electrical cross connection. On their part TNMS and Transconnect/Transnet are primarily created for the purpose of management and planning respectively.

Currently, Shaygan Kheradpir, who is reputed for his great contribution in networking solutions in more than 100 countries, sits among Coriant Board members as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. He provides services to 9 out of the 10 Tier 1 CSPs (Communication Service Providers) worldwide. With an experience of more than 28 years in various fields, Shaygan is both a renowned businessman and leader. He has served in various industries including finance, telecom and technology.

Shaygan started working at GTE Corporation and later appointed to serve as EVP & Chief Information Officer at Verizon. He was also one of the members of Verizon’s executive leadership board whose mandate was to oversee efficiency, modernization, innovation and spearhead product ideas such as FiOS, one of the US’s topmost infrastructure programs and whose capital investment capacity stands at more than $20 billion. Sky was the limit for Shaygan who after joining Barclays was appointed the Technology and Chief Operation Officer. He also sat in the Executive Committee of the Bank as a member. Under his leadership, he created the historical Transformation program of the Bank. A Ph.D, Master’s and bachelor’s degree in engineering holder, acquired from Cornell University, Shaygan is highly knowledgeable in various fields including media, payments and telecom. Above all, he sat in both the Cornell University Engineering Council and the U.S National Institute of Standards & Technology advisory boards.

Kyle Bass Went Wrong Way

After Kyle Bass, a hedge fund manager, predicted the 2008 financial crisis, he was instantly recognized. Some even considered the man to be a genius. But, that glory didn’t last long.

While his presence in the media increased, his investment performance dived. In 2014, it was -30%, and as 2015 unraveled, there was no sign of the genius. Bass has also been predicting for the past 5 years that Japan’s economy will crush. It didn’t happen. So, it seems his 2008 financial crash prediction was a lucky guess- even a broken clock is right twice a day.

In order to help gain some positive investment returns, Bass had made some highly controversial statements. One is when he claimed that Paul Singer of Elliott Management, and his likes, are holding poor countries hostage after these investors demanded that Argentina pays back its debt.

Is Kyle Bass a highly ethical and godly figure who goes on to protect the poor and some other victims from corporate greed? Not likely. It has come out that Bass has had close relationships with the Argentinian elite.

What’s more, he went on to blame the victims of GM car crashes for their own deaths, even though it appears the issues were non-deploying airbags and faulty power steering systems.

It wasn’t nice, but why would this hedge fund manager do something like that? The answer is simple: it was all about money since Bass had made an investment in General Motors. And then, it got much, much worse.

Bass and his partner, Erich Spangenberg, started short-selling pharmaceutical stocks. (A short seller bets that a value of a stock will drop). After, they started suing these pharmaceutical companies by challenging their patents and thus hoping for their share prices to drop as a result of these challenges.

This has potentially endangered the lives of many who need those drugs, just so Bass and Spangenberg could make money. These challenges were dangerous to the health of many because when a patent gets challenged it may extend the time by which the drug reaches the needy.

Of course, Bass claimed it was for the public good. He even started the Coalition for Affordable Drugs as a smokescreen. But, as of the latest report, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board denied Bass’s first two challenges to a couple of patents.

What is Kyle Bass going to do next? That is yet to be seen.
