A Cautionary Tale of a Hedge Fund Manager’s Rise and Fall

Dan Kamensky, the founder and chief investment officer of distressed debt hedge fund Marble Ridge Capital had just orchestrated the restructuring of a lifetime. It was a David vs. Goliath story where he and his firm went toe-to-toe with giant private equity fund Ares, and it looked like he would emerge victorious. But in the moment of what should have been the height of his personal and professional career, Dan made a phone call that would change everything for him. While unsecured creditors would reap the benefits of his 2-year fight to achieve a fair recovery for them, he would not reap the benefits himself. Instead, the call would end his brilliant financial career; he would plead guilty to one count of bankruptcy fraud, serve time in prison, and his successful fund would come to an end.

Please join me in what will prove to be a fascinating fireside chat with Dan. We will have a very frank and open conversation about his personal life, career, mistakes, what he learned, and what is next for him, including founding the Creditor Rights Coalition.

As a teacher, I always encourage my students to learn from each other. Dan’s career has a lot of incredible lessons. His story is one of a brilliant legal mind, an unmatched work ethic, and great ambition. It is also a cautionary tale of how one moment of anger and poor judgment can create a toxic cocktail for impulsive and self-destructive behavior. – Michael Gatto
