Partner Files Hedge Fund Management Complaint

West Palm Beach ( – The Manager of the K Squared Funds, a New York-based group of hedge funds, was named as a defendant in a lawsuit filed by his ex-partner. The suit brings claims for fraud, breach of contract, unjust enrichment, and bad faith dealing in connection with the hedge funds.

Filed in the Commercial Division of New York Supreme Court, New York County, the complaint details how Kane and the hedge funds benefited by false attribution of income to Kane’s ex-partner by profiting from the interest income while saddling the ex-partner with the tax bill, and how Kane failed to comply with his contractual obligations, keeping his ex-partner in the dark about the value of the Funds.

The defendant, Chris Kane of New Canaan, Connecticut, parted ways with his partner in 2006.
