Fisher Investments Ranks on FT 300 List for 3rd Consecutive Year
Financial Times Recognises the Top 300 Registered Investment Advisers for 2016
London, England – June 17, 2016 – Fisher Investments Europe is pleased to announce its parent company, Fisher Investments, has been named one of the FT Top 300 Registered Investment Advisers (RIAs) for the third consecutive year. The list recognises top independent RIA firms across the US.
This is the third annual FT 300 list, produced independently by The Financial Times Ltd. (“FT”) in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of the FT that provides business intelligence on the investment management industry. FT created the FT 300 list to provide readers with a snapshot of the best advisers in the US—“We aimed to provide a picture of leading financial advisers that would be good enough for the educated and discerning readers of the Financial Times.”
More than 1,500 pre-screened RIA firms were invited to fill out a comprehensive application. FT augmented the application data with independent research and information from regulatory filings. Criteria for the assessment focused on creating a quantifiable and objective way to form a list of “established companies with deep, institutional expertise” and included total AUM, AUM growth rates as a proxy for performance, asset retention, the ability to generate new business, years in existence, compliance record, employee industry certifications and online accessibility to illustrate commitment to transparency.
Of those considered, 300 firms were selected for the list. The list is not ranked and is presented as an “elite group” of 300 RIA firms in the US, organised by state. The average FT 300 firm has been in existence for 22 years and manages $2.6 billion in assets.
Damian Ornani, Fisher Investments’ President of Client Acquisition and Service, commented, “We are honored and delighted our firm has been recognised by The Financial Times for three years in a row. It is a privilege to be recognised by one of the world’s leading business news organisations.”
