Fisher Investments, an independent global money management firm, today announced that Investment Advisor (IA) Magazine has named CEO Ken Fisher as one of the top 25 most influential people in the investment advisory universe. In the latest IA 25, Ken Fisher states Fisher Investments is a likely acquirer of RIA assets in 2008 and beyond. The firm recently completed the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of EconoStrat Advisory Corp., which was a registered investment adviser firm located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Fisher plans to explore additional strategic acquisitions that fit with the firm's "overall scheme." In the latest rankings, IA also cites Fisher's unique marketing tactics and growth strategy as factors in the decision to include him in the 2008 IA 25.

"One reason for our success is that we are not afraid to test new ideas in our pursuit of excellence. For example, I believe Fisher Investments was the first money management firm to utilize direct marketing through Internet, radio, print and TV to contact prospective clients, a tactic that has contributed dramatically to the growth of our client base and has enabled us to focus on the business of money management," said Fisher. "We continuously develop new technologies and consider innovative investment theories that allow us to offer our clients unparalleled expertise and access amid increasing demand for our services."

Headquartered in Woodside, California, Fisher Investments houses the bulk of its operations in additional offices located in San Mateo, California and Vancouver, Washington. With over 1,100 employees, Fisher Investments is one of the fastest growing RIA firms in the world, known for its distinct business model and effective use of human capital.
