Yarra Australian Equities Fund


Manager Summary

Yarra Capital Management was established in 2007 following the management buyout of Goldman Sachs Asset Management's Australian investment capabilities and is backed by TA Associates, a global private equity firm with a history of investing in fund managers.

The firm is led by Dion Hershan (MD and Head of Australian Equities), Katie Hudson (Portfolio Manager and Head of Australian Equities Research), Roy Keenan (Head of Australian Fixed Income) and Brett Davidson (COO). The team comprises 15 investment professionals.

Strategy Summary

The Fund aims to achieve medium to long term capital growth through exposure to companies listed on the ASX with the aim of outperforming the S&P/ASX 200 Accumulation Index over rolling three year periods.

Yarra Capital focus on companies which are under-appreciated by the broader market, believing the market is inefficient, and that mispricing opportunities arise when the market's valuation doesn't reflect their view on a company's true value.
