Investment Strategies

Our investment philosophy is based on a fundamental belief in capitalism and how free capital markets function.

We start with the simple notion that supply and demand of securities are the sole determinants of securities pricing. Correspondingly, we believe capital markets are highly effective discounters of all widely known information. Therefore, to add value through active management, one must interpret widely known information differently and correctly from other market participants.

Fisher Investments manages a variety of global, global ex-US, US, and Emerging Market equity strategies for institutional investors. Our strategies leverage our top-down macroeconomic research alongside our fundamental stock selection process.
