Investing is a complex and time-consuming endeavor for even the most experienced investors. Having seen many investors struggle to make sense of market movements over the years, Fisher Investments is excited to publish our insights through Reuters Plus to help put events and their impact on stocks in perspective. Fisher Investments and its subsidiaries manage billions of dollars’ worth of assets for thousands of clients across Europe and North America. We’re excited to share the knowledge we’ve gained in this time to help investors, like you, meet their goals.

Fisher Investments gets to know each client on a one-on-one basis and tailors investment plans to each individual’s goals. Our clients also benefit from having a dedicated investment counselor—an investment professional who knows them by name and regularly analyzes their objectives to ensure their strategies are aligned with their financial needs in retirement. Investments counselors’ sole focus is providing industry-leading client service—they don’t sell financial products or earn commissions on trades in clients’ accounts.

Portfolio management is handled by the firm’s Investment Policy Committee (IPC), under the leadership of Fisher Investments’ founder and legendary investor, Ken Fisher. The IPC, supported by a large research staff, analyzes global capital markets in search of investment opportunities across all sectors. Fisher Investments focuses on interpreting widely known information differently, and the firm’s against-the-grain philosophy has provided value to its clients over the decades. For more information on the impact of current events on your investment or retirement portfolio, return here regularly for Fisher Investments’ latest insights.
