Why Fisher

We believe the following are key reasons why, on average over the last 20 years, more than 9 out of 10 Private Client Group clients have chosen to stay with Fisher Investments.*

1. Flexible Investment Approach

Unlike some money managers and many mutual funds that focus on narrow market categories that may move in and out of favor, we can adjust our investment strategy depending on our forward-looking market views, as well as your personal objectives.

2. Global Investing Expertise

We seek to maximize opportunity and manage risk by investing globally. Many American investors tend to focus solely on US stocks. However, the US makes up about half of the world stock market. We invest globally to take advantage of worldwide opportunities many miss.

3. Competitive, Transparent Fees

Unlike with many brokers, our incentive is not to “churn” your account since we don’t earn any commissions on trades. We simply charge a fee based on assets under management, which aligns our incentives with our clients’ best interests.

4. Direct, Proactive Customer Service

With us, you’re not simply another account number. You’ll hear from us regularly, and not because we have some new product to sell. Our goal is to help you understand exactly what is going on in your account and why, so you feel comfortable with your portfolio.

5. Established Performance History

Our Investment Policy Committee has over 130 years of combined industry experience, and our founder and Executive Chairman, Founder Ken Fisher’s “Portfolio Strategy” column for Forbes ran from 1984 to 2017, making him the longest continually running columnist in the magazine’s history.
