"For us, international equity is a natural extension," Phillippe tells MFWire. "It's where we had gotten the most feedback from clients and prospects."

"We'll be building out a team," Phillippe adds. "We haven't made any decisions yet. That's what we're working on now."

Phillippe met Pozharny when researching the international equity space.

"It didn't start out as a recruiting conversation," Phillippe says. "It was really gathering information and insight and sharing ideas about where the markets are going."

"We just kept talking because he's an expert in the field," Phillippe adds. "As the conversations progressed ... it just started to be clearer that perhaps we should be building this together."

John Montgomery, founder and chief investment officer of Bridgeway, praises Pozharny as standing out in his "passion for logic, data, and evidence."

Meanwhile, since taking over two years ago Phillippe has also been building out Bridgeway's client service and marketing team in the institutional channel.

"We've continued to gain momentum in that area and added institutional clients," Phillippe says. "We have a long ways to go to reach our aspirations. We are making progress and building loyalties."

Before joining Bridgeway, Pozharny spent more than eight years at QMA. Prior to that he worked with TIAA-CREF, Nicholas Applegate, Bank Credit Analyst, and the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. He is an alumnus twice over of both UC Riverside and UC Santa Cruz.
