Inside Ken Fisher's Private Kingdom, Where Hardball Sales Culture Reels In Billions
https://www.fa-mag.com/news/inside-ken-fisher-s-private-king...



Employees who manage relationships recently were instructed to tell customers that Fisher’s remarks -- which included comparing the process of gaining a client’s trust to “trying to get into a girl’s pants” -- were taken out of context and blown out of proportion by the media, according to people familiar with the matter.

Counselors are also instructed to delve into customers’ personal lives: Do you know any public figures? Journalists? Anyone in national or local politics or government? What about finance? How about lawyers? One template used by some investment counselors lists these among the “required questions” for clients.

Such questions can help avoid trouble in the event a client becomes unhappy with Fisher, some former employees said.

Clients who live in certain locations are off limits. One of them is Clark County.

That’s where Camas is nestled, and where Fisher lives. Former colleagues say he wants to avoid bumping into any unhappy customers.

I was wondering why the Ken Fisher junk mail stopped when he moved into the town. <LOL>

It may be an acquired taste. I've heard it described more as a high tech boiler room sales operation.

How does one take that out of context?

Don't know. But I hope such concerned persons never visit the Army Barracks I did, cause that would be the cleanest remark you'd likely hear.

And as to living in Camas.....I wonder if that had anything to do with the paper mill there closing. That used to be one stinky operation.
