Our unique top-down portfolio management process sets us apart from other investment management firms in that our focus is on macro decisions at the country and sector/industry level. We believe our process is uniquely suited for managing portfolios, in contrast with more "bottom-up" approaches of many competitors who may leave key sector or country decisions as passive residuals.
Fisher Investments considers environmental, social and governance issues in the investment and portfolio construction process. Further, we regularly screen and tailor our investment approach for separately managed accounts depending on any particular social and environmental guideline mandated by the client.
