Johann Kenny

Director, Head of Risk Management

Johann Kenny

Johann specialises in data science for credit investing. He sums up what he does in one sentence: “I leverage my domain expertise in credit – from over 15 years of exposure to international debt capital markets – with data science techniques to formulate high conviction, evidence-based investment decisions.”

After completing a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering (Hons) at the Imperial College of London, Johann launched his career as a trainee engineer at the State Engineering Corporation of Sri Lanka. He made a career change to finance by joining the DFCC Bank of Sri Lanka and never looked back. Johann’s insatiable thirst for knowledge lead him to continue his education with a Master’s Degree in Banking and Finance at the University of New South Wales.  Johann has had tenure at a wealth of international financial organisations, most recently as the Chief Risk Ratings Officer at Equifax and a Director at Fitch Ratings covering public and private credit ratings of Australasian corporates. He was also a Credit Research Analyst at ING Investment Management as well as a Relationship Manager of ANZ Institutional Banking.

He lives by the principal of being prepared for the unexpected, because he knows, “life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get”.

The best things about working for Arowana?  Aside from the opportunity to work with a group of very intelligent professionals with diverse experience and skills, is the investment Arowana makes in developing and growing its people.

The secret to success?  Kindness and generosity.
