Mentorship Session with Dmitry Balyasny, BAM
Online Zoom Conference
Dmitry Balyasny is the Chief Investment Officer and Managing Partner of Balyasny Asset Management, L.P. (BAM), a global investment firm founded in 2001 focused on delivering consistent, alpha-driven returns through a multi-strategy, multi-PM approach. Dmitry is an active risk taker and chairs BAM’s Investment Committee. He began his trading career with Schonfeld Securities in 1994. Dmitry holds a bachelor's degree in finance from Loyola University in Chicago. He is involved in a variety of philanthropic activities in Chicago, Illinois.
Mr. Zimmer is the Chief Executive Officer of Zimmer Partners and Portfolio Manager of ZP Utility Fund and ZP Energy Fund. He currently manages a portfolio of approximately 20 billion dollars and is recognized as a leading specialist within energy and infrastructure investing. Zimmer Partners’ highly repeatable process of intense fundamental analysis and aggressive trading of both long and short positions drives the firm’s ability to generate alpha year in and year out, with little to no correlation to the energy sector itself, broader market indices, or other hedge funds.
Mr. Zimmer graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Harvard College with Honors in Mathematics in 1991, where he wrote his thesis under Robert C. Merton, the 1997 Nobel Laureate in Economics. Upon graduation, Mr. Zimmer joined Steinhardt Partners, known as one of the pioneer firms of the investment fund industry. At Steinhardt, Mr. Zimmer was a research analyst with a focus on energy investments, including electric and gas utilities. His experience at Steinhardt also included trading of equities, fixed income, currencies, and derivatives. In 1993, Mr. Zimmer left Steinhardt to manage a utility focused fund sponsored by Commodities Corp. Upon Goldman Sachs’ purchase of Commodities Corp in 1997, Mr. Zimmer launched ZP Utility Fund. He still manages ZP Utility Fund today as well as the more recently launched, ZP Energy Fund, from the firm’s offices in Manhattan.
Mr. Zimmer is also the Chairman of Ategrity Specialty Holdings LLC, a specialty property and casualty insurance group that focuses on the excess and surplus lines market, and Chairman of The Carrick Group, an international non-life reinsurance and claims management company.
