ABOUT BRANDYWINE ASSET MANAGEMENT
Founded in 1982, Brandywine is considered to be one of the pioneers in the field of alternative investments and has a long history of investment innovation, research and trading. Over the past 30 years, Brandywine’s principal, Mike Dever, has delivered an enviable track record and has managed a variety of highly successful trading programs in the global equity and futures markets, including the Brandywine Benchmark Program which ran from 1991-1998 with a compound annual return of over 20% per annum and no negative years.
Today, Brandywine is solely focused on the fundamentally-based, yet systematically-applied, Brandywine Symphony Program which incorporates the entire 30+ year legacy of research and trading of the firm.
Mike is also the best-selling author of Jackass Investing: Don’t do it. Profit from it. In the book, Mike exposes several commonly held investment myths, including the myth that investors can achieve proper portfolio diversification solely by spreading their money across stocks, bonds and real estate. In contrast to this, Mike believes that true portfolio diversification can only be achieved by balancing positions in multiple markets across multiple strategies, each one based on a distinct “return driver”.
