Fisher Investments starts with a top-down investing process and the belief that the most important investing decision is your asset allocation—the mix of equities, fixed interest, cash and other securities in your portfolio. To determine a personalised asset allocation and portfolio strategy consistent with your goals and objectives, your initial and ongoing contacts will speak with you in detail to determine your complete financial picture. As your circumstances change over time, your portfolio may also need to change, which is one reason we regularly and proactively reach out to clients to reassess needs.
As a client, you will receive a dedicated Investment Counsellor who proactively provides education and ensures your asset management needs are being met. Your Investment Counsellor will call you on a regular basis not only to answer market-related questions you may have, but also to discuss market events and explain what is happening, our view of the reasons behind it and any potential portfolio impact. Investment Counsellors also act as your line of communication to the Investment Policy Committee, the five-member group which makes all decisions in client portfolios.
Your Investment Counsellor is there to help you stay on track in your investing journey, and to help you understand your portfolio and our market outlook. Further, you will have access to resources to help enrich your understanding and experience of how the Fisher group works to assist you with the following:
