What is the investment philosophy of Fisher Investments?

Fisher Investments is continually committed to developing new technologies to understand capital markets and has pioneered numerous financial innovations over the past 20+ years. At the core of Fisher’s principles is a fundamental belief in capitalism and how free capital markets function, and capital markets are relatively efficient discounters of all widely known information.

How is Fisher Investments different from other investment firms?

Many investment firms are dedicated to one specific style of investing, using a static approach to style and asset allocation. As a result, these managers tend to do very well when their style is in favour and poorly when their style falls out of favour. Over time this can result in mediocre returns. Fisher Investments believes in utilising a variable approach in determining asset and style allocation. Fisher Investments strives to add value through active management by interpreting widely known information correctly and differently from other market participants and then capitalising on those opportunities. Back to top
