Please join the New York Association for Energy Economics when we welcome Jonathan Chanis, Managing Member of New Tide Asset Management to our Thursday, April 13th, 2017 lunch.

During the presidential election of 2016, candidate Donald Trump promised to substantially reorder the production and consumption of energy in the United States. In his first few weeks in office, President Trump has taken a limited number of actions, especially regarding several EPA regulations, and the permitting of pipelines. The outlook for additional measures, especially those requiring more cooperative action with the Congress and states, is much less certain. How might the next round of President Trump's policy changes look? Will the President be successful in substantially changing existing U.S. energy and environmental policies? Jonathan Chanis, a long time participant in, and analyst of, the energy sector will discuss the outlook for energy and environmental legislative and regulatory policy changes under the new administration.

Jonathan Chanis has worked in energy and finance for over 25 years. Most of this time has been spent trading and investing in the emerging markets and various commodities markets, especially petroleum and natural gas. Currently he is Managing Member of New Tide Asset Management, a political and economic consultancy focused on supply and value chain management and energy security.

Previously, Mr. Chanis was Managing Director at Tribeca Global Management where he traded energy and emerging market equities, and commodities and currencies. He also was a Senior Trader at Caxton Associates were he traded similar assets. Earlier, Mr. Chanis assisted AIG in building its third party asset management business, and was president of several AIG companies including its Russian investment bank. He also worked on the trading desk of J. Aron & Co., and he was a Vice President at the Bank for Foreign Economic Affairs of the U.S.S.R., and at the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Mr. Chanis is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and he was an Advisory Board member, and then a member of the Board of Directors of The Energy Forum, for over 20 years. He holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from the Graduate School, CUNY, and a BA in Economics from Brooklyn College.
