Gareth Brown joined Intelligent Investor (the original parent company of Forager) in 2002 and spent the next 10 years as a senior member of the analyst team working closely with Steve Johnson. Gareth began research for Forager when the Forager International Shares Fund was launched in early 2013.
Prior to this, Gareth spent seven years at Commonwealth Bank, initially in risk management and then on the trading floor. Whilst working at CBA, he completed a Bachelor of Business degree, majoring in Finance, at University of Technology, Sydney.
Gareth’s healthy scepticism and willingness to ask the questions no one wants to ask make for lively team discussions. He is an avid traveller and is unmatched in his knowledge of geography (in our office at least), something put to good use as he scours the world looking for opportunities, particularly in Europe. Gareth lives with his wife, son and daughter in Sydney, Australia.
