Episode 77: Profit or purpose, or can you do both with Tammira Phillipe

Welcome to episode 77. In today’s episode, I have Tammira Philippe joining me. 

Tammira is President and CEO of Bridgeway Capital Management. Bridgeway is an investment management firm that stewards over $4 billion in quantitative public equity strategies for clients and the firm donates 50% of its earnings to make a positive impact on the world. Tammira is a member of the firm’s Board of Directors, President of Bridgeway Funds, and serves on committees including: Portfolio Innovation and Risk, Responsible Investing , Enterprise Risk, and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Prior to becoming President and CEO, Tammira led strategy and operations projects at Bridgeway from 2005 to 2010 and was Head of Client Service and Marketing from 2010 to 2016.

Her experience prior to Bridgeway includes strategy consulting with McKinsey & Company and business development and marketing for a global satellite communications startup. Tammira is passionate about promoting education and social justice, two areas that are fulfilled through her professional work and volunteer service.

Tammira and I dive into a great conversation about how so many organizations struggle between being a purpose driven organization, but also having the money conversation on being profit generating.

Specifically, here’s what you will learn:

  • How do you choose between short term and long-term goals? How do you choose to do the right thing, even when there’s a long horizon to reaping any benefits?
  • A great framework for setting strategy for your career and life 
  • What’s happened that has eroded our clients trust in financial services 
  • What people can be doing to get better at building clients’ trust
  • Why we’re off track broadly in financial services, and what we can do about it
  • What Tammira has you learned about herself in the process of getting to where she is today.
