In their own words
“Fisher Investments manages more than $100 billion in investments globally, helping individuals, families, 401(k) plans and institutions reach their financial goals,” says Lane Jarvis, chief global human capital officer.
About the culture
Employees are free to apply for any internal role and chart their own career paths. Fisher has an open office in which leaders of all levels sit among the employees.
"I have learned more in my first three months here than I did during my first three years in the industry."
"I believe in what I am doing and why."
"I am paid well, I feel appreciated, and I enjoy the sense of teamwork and the positive atmosphere my manager has created."
Rather than promoting its favorite charities, Fishers says its preference is for employees to make their own philanthropic choices as they see fit. It holds occasional fund drives at the office for food or toys for charity.
Founder and executive chairman Ken Fisher wrote the Forbes “Portfolio Strategy” column for over 30 years, continues to write for Financial Times and USA Today, and has authored four New York Times bestsellers on finance and investing.
