Fisher Investments Policy Committee

The Fisher Investments Investment Policy Committee's (IPC) role is to develop strategies for the firm's services based on Fisher Investments' philosophy, process, research and view of current market conditions. The IPC collaboratively makes strategic and tactical investment decisions affecting the Fisher Investments portfolios. While the IPC functions as a team, each member takes on a distinct role in day-to-day portfolio management responsibilities, thus leveraging individual expertise. In addition to contributing to the broad, overall strategy, the team also collectively oversees Fisher Investments' in-house research efforts, portfolio engineering & implementation and the firm's technological research resources.

The Fisher Investments Investment Policy Committee has over 130 years of combined money management experience.
