Howard W. Cunningham

Investment Strategist

Co-Founder & Chief Investment Officer, Cunningham Investment Management, LLC (CIM)


Howard is the developer of a proprietary investment approach called Dynamic Asset Allocation (DAA) which helps to reduce portfolio risk without sacrificing long term performance.” The DAA approach seeks opportunity across a broad range of diversified investments while employing active risk management to reduce the potential for significant losses during volatile market periods. DBR & Co. utilizes the DAA approach in its Metis Global Dynamic Strategies.

Compared to similar alternatives, Metis offers our clients the benefits of transparency and liquidity as key components of our Investment Process. Metis participates in market sectors through investment in exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The Metis Global Dynamic Strategies utilize an active indexing approach which is flexible and adjusts portfolio allocations and risk with changing market conditions. Prior to starting his own investment management business, Cunningham Investment Management, Mr. Cunningham spent two years learning money management from renowned Market Wizard Ed Seykota. Howard has been featured in Futures Magazine and has been quoted by the Wall Street Transcript.

He holds a B.S. degree in Finance from Oklahoma City University and an MBA from the University of Nevada, Reno.

Howard enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing and coaching sports, snow skiing, fly fishing and other outdoor activities. Howard currently lives in Pittsburgh with his wife Vicky and two children Grant (10) and Sheridan (5).
