Beyond the Obvious – Episode with Kathryn Young


In this episode, I had the pleasure of chatting with Kathryn Young, the Head of Investments for Cambooya Pty Ltd, the Fairfax Family Office.

Kathryn’s had an interesting investment career having previously worked for Mutual Trust and the Myer Family office as Director of Investment research and for Morningstar as Director of Manager Research. This puts Kathryn in a unique position in having met and interviewed many of Australia’s top fund managers across all asset classes. Despite the informational barrage in the world of investments, Kathryn’s focus on clarity and simplicity cuts through the overwhelm to find managers that generate repeatable returns.

By the end of our conversation, Kathryn left me feeling at ease in a world of complexity, which speaks firstly to her depth of understanding and perspective, but also to her humility. I really enjoyed our chat. I hope you find it as interesting as I did.
