An Appraisal of Kyle Bass’ Views about Investing in China

Hayman Capital Management’s founder and president recently predicted that investors won’t be venturing in China due to the vulnerable state that its banking sector has found itself in. Speaking during the Milken Institute Global Conference held in Beverly Hills, California, Mr. Bass retaliated that whoever makes an investment is bound to make losses. It precarious nature makes it risky for anyone to put their money there.

Bass is a hedge fund executive who made a name for himself by predicting the financial crisis of 2008. He gambled against the subprime mortgage of the US. This earned him immense fame and fortune. His current prediction against China has seen him start raising funds to wage against its economy. To safeguard their investments in the Asian nation venture capitalists ought to ensure that they handle at least 30 to 40 per cent of their write downs.

Pitfalls Faced by Kyle Bass in his Career

For a man who made many foes and admirers alike by predicting the financial recession of 2008, his fall from grace has received an enormous share of media attention. At the moment, each passing day presents a new low for someone perceived to be the favorite hedge funder for Argentine aristocrats. His previously impeccable career has become checkered, which has upheld the notion by skeptics that his earlier success was based on luck.

His streak of luck seems to have run out in recent times. He has been consistently making one bad call after another, something that has given him distasteful comparisons. To make matters worse, he has done this in full glare of media camera. His so-called financial market analysis has constantly ended up being wrong. In spite of this, he never shies away from the media.

Away from his bad calls, Bass has become renowned for his seedy alliances. While all the players in the financial markets believe that Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner has messed up Argentina’s economy, Bass has used all avenues to talk about her impressive policies. When the South American country failed to pay its ascendant debt for instance, Bass was on the forefront explaining the rationale behind the default. This made him a prominent figure among those who were close to the dictator. He has also come to the defense of any policies made by de Kirchner’s administration, something that has made him a pariah in the financial markets. His ethical lapse has also seen him lay claim to patents of several pharmaceutical companies.
