Tim Berry graduated with a Bachelor of Mathematics and Finance from UOW and is a founding owner of Tibra Capital, and works as Tibra’s Global Managing Director.

As co-founder of Tibra Capital, Tim was initially responsible for the strategic direction of the company which grew very quickly from 17 people to a peak head count of more than 250. In 2016 Tibra posted a $79 million net profit from $189 million revenue.

Tibra Capital is a quantitative research and investment group that uses its shareholders’ capital across a broad range of investment strategies. Its mission is to facilitate liquidity, price fairness and efficient allocation of capital in financial markets, leading to growth in its investors’ wealth.

As Tibra transitioned from its start-up origins and operational style, Tim was formally appointed global managing director in 2012, and since then he has driven the roll-out of the corporate governance framework inside the organisation.

In recent years, Tim has promoted strong bonds between education and industry in the Illawarra through liaison with UOW both via Tibra and in an individual capacity. He has worked with the University to provide guidance in relation to course content particularly with the development of the Quantitative & Computational Trading Major in the Bachelor of Mathematics & Finance degree, as well as Tibra offering scholarships and summer internship opportunities for high-achieving students.

Tim has established a CEO network in the region and now chairs its bi-monthly meetings. The Wollongong CEO Network is primarily a peer support network for CEOs of eight of the larger businesses based in Wollongong.
