Global ex-US Strategies

Fisher Investments’ global ex-US strategies seek to exploit the structure of global markets and capitalize on country, sector and industry cycles as they come in and out of favor. In order to leverage top-down themes and identify unintended risk concentrations in the security selection process, the Investment Policy Committee applies risk management controls based on an analysis of prospective stocks to assess their correlations to various countries and sectors.

Strategy benefits include:

  • Innovative investment process accounting for country, sector and stock decisions.
  • Excess return in a variety of market environments.
  • A top-down process complementing a multi-manager structure, increasing diversification benefits.
