Mike Dever is a trader and investor. He was also episode number one on this podcast!
Mike has been on the front line of investment innovation and trading for more than 30 years. His firm, Brandywine Asset Management, has produced top-ranked returns for its clients that are uncorrelated to all conventional investment benchmarks. His out-of-the-box thinking, innovative investment philosophy and investment success have made him a featured subject of three books, “Bulls, Bears and Millionaires,” “Market Beaters” and “The Investor’s Guide to Hedge Funds.”
Mike was driven to write his book “Jackass Investing” in 1999, after seeing the fever instilled in people at the peak of that great U.S. stock market bubble. But writing the book took a back seat until the financial crisis of 2008 demanded its completion. Today, Mike devotes his time to running Brandywine Asset Management, which follows his Return Driver based methodology to trade broadly diversified portfolios in the global currency, interest rate, stock index, metals, energy and agricultural markets.
