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)
