Tim Fortier

Tim Fortier

Founder, Chief Investment Officer

With 30 years of experience as an investment professional, I’ve worked as a Broker, Advisor, Chief Investment Officer, and Consultant.  I’ve experienced the Boom of the 90s, the Tech Bubble, the Housing Bust leading to the Credit Crash in 2008, the Recovery, and all of the recent ups and downs. 

By observing how popular investment strategies leave the outcome to chance and expose investors to significant risks, I have been on a mission to provide investors with a better way to invest.

In 1993 I started my own company and began focusing on building rules-based stock models.  Later, when ETFs became more widely available, I was among the first to embrace their use and developed several systematic ETF strategies.  

In 2000, I was hired as the CIO of a wealth management & family office where  I was responsible for building strategies for the firm while also helping launch three hedge funds.

In 2004, I started a newsletter to give everyday investors an opportunity to use rules-based models.  Along the way, I developed relationships with RIA firms and financial publishers as a way to bring the models to everyone. Today, our models are available to all facets of the financial world through three separate companies:  Drawbridge Investor, Drawbridge Wealth and Drawbridge Alliances.
