Michael Dever has been on the front line of investment innovation and trading for more than 30 years. After three years of private research and trading, he founded Brandywine Asset Management in 1982. For the past three decades, Mr. Dever and Brandywine have been entrusted to manage the money of global banks, major corporations and high net worth individuals who have been attracted to Mr. Dever's innovative investment philosophy.
His out-of-the-box thinking and investment success have also made him a featured subject of three books: Bulls, Bears and Millionaires; Market Beaters; and The Investor's Guide to Hedge Funds.
In addition to his investment management background, Mr. Dever is also a technology entrepreneur. He founded spree.com, one of the first ecommerce communities, in 1996. Spree grew to be the 7th most-trafficked ecommerce website by 1998. Following a venture funding round in 1999, Mr. Dever left spree and founded Mind Drivers, a venture development company that has launched and grown Internet-based technology companies such as Internetseer (sold in 2007 to Landmark Communications, the founders of The Weather Channel) and marine.com.
Today, Mr. Dever devotes his time to running Brandywine Asset Management, which follows Mr. Dever's Return Driver based methodology. Brandywine trades broadly diversified portfolios in the global currency, interest rate, stock index, metals, energy and agricultural cash, futures and options markets.
Mr. Dever lives near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with his wife Kim and three sons, Mitchell, Matthew and Charley. He has a bachelor's degree in business from West Chester University (1981) and obtained his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification in 1985.
