Yarra Capital Management has appointed Tim Toohey as head of macro and strategy, where he will work with the fixed income and equities team.
His role would include advising the fixed income and equities team on the outlook for financial markets and asset allocation.
“I’m excited to have joined the Yarra team to add a macro lens to the firm’s already strong integrated credit and equity research function, in what is a fascinating time to be working in investment markets,” Toohey said.
Toohey joined from Ellerston Capital where he was chief economist of Ellerston’s global macro team.
He had previously spent 15 years at chief economist and head of macro strategy Australia and New Zealand at Goldman Sachs, where he worked alongside Yarra’s senior management team.
He had been named Australia’s number one economist in the Greenwich survey for 13 consecutive years from 2003-2016.
