Why Fisher Investments?

Fisher Investments is a different kind of investment firm. We don’t come from Wall Street, nor do we believe we fit in with most of the finance industry, and we’re proud of that. We work for a bigger purpose: bettering the investment universe. From unmatched service to innovative perspectives on investing, it’s the people that make the Fisher purpose possible. After all, it’s our people that enable us to offer the level of service that we do. And we invest in them accordingly, offering exceptional benefits (upon conversion to permanent hire) like:

  • 100% coverage of premiums for health, vision and dental insurance
  • 50% 401(k) match - up to the IRS maximum
  • 20 days of PTO* (plus 9 paid holidays)
  • Open and supportive team-based environment

This emphasis on personal and professional growth has yielded an award-winning work environment; we’re Great Place to Work Certified, and The Oregonian named us as a 2017 and 2018 Top Workplace.
