The Investment Policy Committee is a five-member portfolio management team, responsible for making strategic investment decisions affecting the client’s portfolios. This centralized decision-making approach is different from the rest of the industry.

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 collaboratively makes all strategic investment decisions affecting clients’ portfolios. Though the IPC functions as a team, each member focuses on particular segments of investment strategy. While all five committee members conduct macroeconomic, political and sentiment analysis in support of the firm’s strategies, Ken Fisher (Founder & Co-Chief Investment Officer) leads these efforts. Jeff Silk (Vice Chairman & Co-Chief Investment Officer), Bill Glaser (Executive Vice President of Portfolio Management), Aaron Anderson (Senior Vice President of Research) and Michael Hanson (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.
