Putting Clients First
We do things differently from other investment firms—not just to be different, but because it matters for our clients. We designed our entire business to minimize conflicts of interest. We have a strong division of labor between our sales and service roles, allowing employees in each role to focus on their strengths. At Fisher, our client service focuses entirely on providing superior service, not additional sales. And we’re continually looking for ways to improve so that we can keep serving our clients' best interests into the future.
This clear focus on servicing our clients is what makes Fisher a better place to work, too.

Our employees drive our firm’s success, and we support their development by providing opportunities to succeed. We hire and promote employees based on merit, potential and “will-do” attitude.

While everyone forges their own unique path at Fisher, we are all on a journey together—a journey to better the investment universe.
Support & Benefit
We support each other. In our open office environment, everyone from entry-level employees to VPs shares the same space and is treated as an equal. Teams are motivated to collaborate and interact without physical or organizational barriers.
Our customized development programs and award-winning training help employees excel in their current roles, while gaining new skills to prepare for their next one.

Fisher recognizes and rewards hard work and dedication because our employees’ contributions are what make our success possible. We celebrate wins of all sizes and make sure each employee’s great work does not go unnoticed. Authentic recognition is the norm across every level, role, department and country to encourage and reinforce our values.
Diversity and Inclusion
Everyone is welcome at Fisher Investments. We value diverse perspectives and encourage innovation and forward thinking. We seek those who aren’t afraid to try something different and are open to considering new processes and approaches. That’s why we hire people from different backgrounds, with different points of view, and why more than half of our senior executive vice presidents are women and report directly to the CEO.
By creating a positive, productive and rewarding work environment, we are able to maximize the quality of service we deliver to each and every client. In doing so, we are proud to be recognized as a top place to work.
