Christopher Joye

Christopher is the founder and managing director of Smarter Money Investments and is a contributing editor of The Australian Financial Review; he produced a landmark report on affordable housing for the Australian Prime Ministers Home Ownership Task Force.

In February 2009, Christopher was invited by the Rockefeller and MacArthur Foundations to present innovative policy solutions to America’s housing market woes based on Rismark’s experience at the private Transforming America’s Housing Policy summit for Obama Administration officials in New York. In 2009 The Australian newspaper selected Christopher as one of Australia’s top 10 “Emerging Leaders” in its economic/wealth category.

In 2007 Christopher was selected by The Bulletin magazine as one of Australia’s “10 Smartest CEOs” and by BRW Magazine as one of “Australia’s Top 10 Innovators”. He previously worked with Goldman Sachs’ Investment Banking Division in Europe and Australasia. Christopher was formerly a member of the Special Projects team within the Reserve Bank of Australia’s Domestic Markets Division. In 2008, the Australian Government embraced a radical policy proposal developed by Christopher and Professor Joshua Gans of Melbourne University to provide liquidity to the Australian securitisation market to mitigate the adverse effects of the 2007-2008 credit crisis. This idea was also endorsed by the Government’s 2020 Summit.

Christopher served as a Director of The Menzies Research Centre, which is a leading Australian think-tank, from 2003 to 2007. He is an experienced financial economist with expertise in investments and the dynamics of the residential real estate market.
