Our Background

Yarra Capital Management is a leading independent, active Australian fund manager with a strong local market heritage.

Yarra Capital Management was established in 2017 following the management buyout of Goldman Sachs Asset Management’s Australian-focused investment capabilities and operating platform, backed by TA Associates, a global growth private equity firm with a long history of investing in funds management companies.

The firm’s offering includes its fundamental Australian equities product set, consisting primarily of long-only, concentrated strategies. The firm’s fixed income capabilities provide clients with access to multi-asset and hybrid strategies. We serve the Australian institutional and retail markets, and our Australian investment products are accessed from various international markets, including Japan.

The firm is led by the senior management team comprising Dion Hershan (Managing Director 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 (Chief Operating Officer). Dion, Katie, Roy and Brett lead a team of approximately 40 professionals focused on delivering the best outcomes for the firm’s institutional and retail clients. The investment team comprises 16 investment professionals with an average 15 years’ industry experience. See here for more information about the team.
