In this episode, we are joined by John Montgomery, the founder and CIO of Bridgeway Capital Management. Bridgeway is unique in the world of Wall Street, where profits are usually the primary motive, in that it donates 50% of its profits to charity, makes everyone who works at the company a partner, and strives to maintain a low ratio of compensation of its highest paid team members relative to the lowest paid. The firm has also built an excellent long-term record managing quantitative, factor-based strategies. In the interview, we discuss Bridgeway’s unique culture, John’s path to becoming a quantitative investor, and the biggest lessons of his career running factor models. We also talk about Bridgeway’s process of building quantitative models and how they view the major investing factors.
We hope you enjoy the discussion.
