John Montgomery

JOHN MONTGOMERY is the Founder of Bridgeway Capital Management, Inc.,
and Investment Manager for Bridgeway Fund. His work with computer
modeling and quantitative methods as a research engineer at MIT in the
late 1970s led to research on applying quantitative methods to
investments while at Harvard Business School. Upon graduating with an
MBA in 1985, Mr. Montgomery began applying these methods to his own
investments. Over the next six years, these methods proved more
successful than he expected. With his stock investing income more than
twice his regular salary, he left the transportation industry at the end
of 1991 to perform full-time research on these methods, to study the
mutual fund industry, and to write a business plan for Bridgeway. Mr.
Montgomery earned Bachelor’s degrees from Swarthmore College in
Engineering and Philosophy. He is active in the Stephen Ministry at his
church and has served for 12 years on the board of a mental health
rehabilitation community.
