Camas, WA (PRWEB) April 15, 2015
Contrary to stories circulating, Fisher Investments CEO and Founder Ken Fisher, currently 64, is not retiring.
As has been stated for years, Mr. Fisher will step down from the CEO position sometime in 2016, handing over day-to-day management of the firm’s non-investment operations. He will remain Chairman and Co-Chief Investment Officer and a member of the Investment Policy Committee with no change to his investment responsibilities. As Chairman, he will continue to regularly interact with clients, employees, and the investing public.
CEO succession is routinely discussed among institutional clients and their consultants and is included in the request for proposal (RFP) process, finals presentations, and regular updates with clients for all investment management firms, including Fisher Investments.
