Research Milestones

  • Price to Sales Ratio
    In the early 1980s, Fisher Investments pioneered the use of the Price to Sales Ratio and detailed its relevance as a tool for investment analysis.
  • Small Cap Value
    Fisher Investments pioneered the identification of the small cap value equity universe in the mid-1980s and continues to be a leader in this style of equity management.
  • Style Cycle Research
    In the early 1990s, Fisher Investments developed research on investment styles and cycles. The company used these advancements as the foundation for a new series of broad equity mandate strategies: Global Total Return, Foreign Equity, and US Total Return.

    More recently Fisher Investments' focus has been on the emerging field of behavioral finance and understanding not just the tools of finance, but also how investors use these tools.
