Our Portfolio Management Team

At Fisher Investments, the Portfolio Management Team is headed by an Investment Policy Committee with support from research analysts and other financial professionals.

Investment Policy Committee

The Investment Policy Committee (IPC) collaboratively makes all strategic investment decisions affecting clients’ portfolios. Though the IPC functions as a team, each member focuses his efforts on particular segments of investment strategy. While all four committee members conduct macroeconomic, political and sentiment analysis in support of the firm’s strategies, Ken Fisher (Founder & Co-Chief Investment Officer) plays the primary role in this process. Jeff Silk (Vice Chairman & Co-Chief Investment Officer), Bill Glaser (Executive Vice President of Portfolio Management) and Aaron Anderson (Senior Vice President of Research) are primarily responsible for the selection of securities within the firm’s strategies, overseeing Fisher Investments’ in-house research efforts, portfolio engineering and implementation, and the firm’s technological research resources.
