CEO Ken Fisher has been a professional investor for over 35 years and is globally recognized as a financial guru. He has written Forbes' Portfolio Strategy column for over 25 years, authored 6 books, including 3 New York Times best sellers,


I had a Fisher salesman come to my home (after they kept phoning me) and give me a run down of what they would do for me. Personally, I was not too happy. I made it clear how old I am and that I was not ready to take on a lot of risk. They would have me sell all my present investments (50/50). It seemed to me that everyone gets the same portfolio. Also, Fisher does just as badly as everyone else when the market "crashes".

I stayed with my current investment mgr who charges much less in fees and is local. You should be able to negotiate fees. Fisher does not negotiate, no matter how much you have to invest. But Fisher just does not "get it" and keeps calling me.
