William Michael Cunningham

William Michael Cunningham is an economist, investment advisor, researcher, and social investing policy analyst. Cunningham researches, evaluates, develops, and creates specific socially responsible investments. On February 6, 2006, he warned the SEC that statistical models he created using his Fully Adjusted Return Methodology signaled the possibility of system-wide economic and market failure. A former securities broker and institutional salesman, he works with pension fund trustees, investment managers, community activists, government agencies, and financial industry organizations to create and implement social and community investing initiatives. Cunningham has testified before the Ways and Means and Financial Services Committees of the U.S. House of Representatives. In an October 1998 petition to the United States Court of Appeals, he opposed the elimination of the Glass Steagall Act, citing evidence that growing financial market malfeasance greatly reduced the safety and integrity of large financial institutions. Cunningham has been involved in the provision of online resources to small businesses for over fifteen years, posting his first website in 1995. In 2002, he created a proposal for an early version of Crowdfunding. Cunningham holds an MA in economics from the University of Chicago, as well as an MBA in finance from the university s Booth School of Business.
