I was with Fisher for 5 years. Inclusive of management fees they matched the MSCI World Index over that time.

Their investing philosophy is to be 100% in equities unless you believe the market will drop more than 20%.

He predicted the 2000 crash and moved his investors out of the market in November of 1999. He then re-entered the market prematurely in 2002.

He completely missed the 2008 fiasco, predicting the market would be up more than 25% that year, with an outside possibility of 40% if sentiment were to improve.

Investments are pretty much limited to large cap stocks. The minimum investment used to be $750K. They probably lowered it to $500K because their clients lost so much money in 2008.
