Stephen Arnold

Managing Director & CIO

Stephen has been investing in offshore markets for 29 years, making him one of Australia’s most experienced international investors.

Before founding Aoris Investment Management in 2017, Stephen was Head of International Equities at Evans & Partners. He directly managed $1bn of client assets and over six and a half years generated investment returns that were in the top decile of a broad peer group of international funds.

Stephen spent the period of 1999 to 2018 in London, most of which was with Goldman Sachs Asset Management where he held a senior role in a small team managing an ~$5bn concentrated global equity  portfolio.

Stephen was at Platinum Asset Management early 1994 to late 1997 covering US equities. He began his career at Bankers Trust Australia where he was part of the domestic equities investment team.

Stephen holds a Bachelor of  Business from UTS, and is a CFA charterholder.

As well as investing, Stephen loves early morning cycling and lunchtime running around Sydney’s harbour foreshore. He is an avid reader of nonfiction, though he wishes he read books as often as he buys them. Stephen loves history and travelling, with Italy a favourite destination. He has a growing collection of fossils and antiquities. Steve enjoys spending time his wife, Kirsty, and their two boys, Samuel and William.
