Stephen J. Huxley, Ph.D.

A recognized leader in finance, investing and economics, Stephen has more than 35 years of experience researching and applying decision theory to real world problems.

His prize-winning research in scheduling led to the development of the Asset Dedication approach, which applies a time and goals-based approach to asset allocation. Stephen is a tenured Professor of Decision Sciences at the University of San Francisco.

Stephen won the National Franz Edelman Award for Outstanding Achievement in Management Science, the highest award given by the profession, for his work in scheduling.

He first applied his scheduling research to the construction of investment strategies in the late 1990’s.

This work ultimately led to the book Asset Dedication: How to Grow Wealthy with the Next Generation of Asset Allocation (McGraw-Hill, 2004), which he co-authored with Brent Burns. Stephen holds a doctorate in economics from the University of California at San Diego and an undergraduate degree in business and statistics from Ohio State University.


J. Brent Burns, MBA

Brent brings more than a decade of financial and investment experience to his work in applying academic research to the development of practical and innovative portfolio strategies.

His work with Asset Dedication began at the University of San Francisco, where he partnered with co-Founder Stephen Huxley as a McLaren Research Fellow to study portfolio performance and the impact of withdrawal rates, inflation, and market conditions.

In addition to his role at Asset Dedication, Brent periodically teaches the Personal Finance courses in the MBA and undergraduate programs at the University of San Francisco School of Management.

Brent holds an MBA with honors from the University of San Francisco and a BS from the University of California, Berkeley. Brent is also a former world-class pole vaulter and was a member of the U.S. National Track and Field Team.
