Episode 009: Bogleheads on Investing - guest Dr. Wesley Gray, host Rick Ferri

Dr. Wesley R. "Wes" Gray is my guest in Episode 9, and our focus is on "factor" investing. Dr. Gray is the CEO of Alpha Architect, an author, portfolio manager, United States Marine, Iraq War vet, and a former professor of finance at Drexel University. He earned an MBA and a Ph.D. in finance from the University of Chicago where he studied under Nobel Prize Winner Eugene Fama. He is a contributor to multiple industry publications and regularly speaks to professional investor groups across the country. Dr. Gray has published multiple academic papers and four books, including Embedded (Naval Institute Press, 2009), Quantitative Value (Wiley, 2012), DIY Financial Advisor (Wiley, 2015), and Quantitative Momentum (Wiley, 2016). His research-intensive asset management firm focuses on high-conviction value and momentum factor exposures.

 

This podcast is hosted by Rick Ferri, CFA, a long-time Boglehead and investment adviser. The Bogleheads are a group of like-minded individual investors who follow the general investment and business beliefs of John C. Bogle, founder and former CEO of the Vanguard Group. It is a conflict-free community where individual investors reach out and provide education, assistance and relevant information to other investors of all experience levels at no cost.

  

The organization's free website is Bogleheads.org, and the wiki site is Bogleheads® wiki. Bogleheads sites are operated by volunteers who contribute time and talent. Donations help defray operating costs.

 

Since 2000, the Bogleheads' have held national conferences in major cities around the country and currently meet in Philadelphia in the autumn of each year. There are dozens of Local Chapters in the US and several Foreign Chapters that also meet regularly.

 

This podcast is supported by the John C. Bogle Center for Financial Literacy, a non-profit organization approved by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) public charity on February 6, 2012.
