    Wow, if it were Citadel, that would really be something. Kinda doubt that, though. They're freakin' huge...
  4. I think it was Citadel who took over Amaranths portfolio....

    Didn't they buy the Amaranth positions? Hmm.. I wonder which of their funds caused the blow up?

    I thought Centaurus was going to take over Amaranth's book. Have not heard for sure though... Well, going early weekend so I'm gone. Hope your week was a nice as mine.
  7. I know JP Morgan was in the bidding for a good chunk of it... but it was the energy portfolio that caused people worry. This sounds like it was some fund with significant currency exposure?

  9. Ken's all business and knows that at 15bb aum the $ isn't in the return, it's in the management of volatility and achieving respectable alpha...not blowing the doors off all the competition.

    ...any more rumors?
