61 minutes

In episode 323, we welcome our guest, John Montgomery, founder and Chief Investment Officer of Bridgeway Capital Management, a $5 billion quantitative manager that donates 50% of its profits to charity.

In today’s episode, we start by hearing what made our John leave a job in the Transit sector to start a quantitative investment firm. We walk through what drew him to a rules-based approach and then touch on different factors, including size, value, and low volatility. We even touch on Bridgeway’s ultra small cap strategy and how it captures the small-cap premium.  

As we wind down, we hear about the firm’s unique structure, which includes donating half its profits to charity with the goal of ending genocide.

Please enjoy this episode with Bridgeway Capital Management’s John Montgomery.
