About Kathryn Derbes CFA
A native of New Orleans, Kathy graduated from Vanderbilt University with a BE in Civil Engineering.
Following six years of engineering experience, Kathy began her investment management career. During her decade at Kidder, Peabody & Co. she built a private client and institutional clientele focusing on Endowments and Foundations. At GSB Investment Management, Inc., she furthered her career with a similar client profile adding Plan Sponsors.
Commuting to Boston and San Francisco weekly, Kathy met with institutional clients for State Street Global Advisors and Mellon Institutional Asset Management. Following her years with them she decided to pursue her career completely focused on the macroeconomic environment, particularly strategies for protection from the continual debasement of fiat currencies.
Her lifelong study of hyperinflation periods throughout history and the psychological impact on those who experience it has had a profound impact on her professional life.
She resides in Dallas, TX where KDPM is located.
