Nanes Balkany’s Balkany Leaves

Dec 22 2010 | 11:02pm ET

The namesakes behind oil and gas hedge fund Nanes Balkany Partners are splitting up.

Julien Balkany has left the New York-based activist firm, it said yesterday. Co-founder Daryl Nanes has taken sole control of the reins at Nanes Balkany, which has enjoyed a string of unbroken successes since its establishment three years ago. The firm rose about 23% in 2008, its first year, and returned 48% last year. It is up about 43% this year.

“I am very proud of our accomplishments over the last three years and the experience has been one of the most rewarding of my career,” Balkany said. “As a French national, I have always kept some focus on Europe for the next stage of my career and I feel that the success of Nanes Balkany Partners allows me to now move on to take on new opportunities and challenges.”
