Dubai, March 26, 2014
Fisher Asset Management, trading as ‘Fisher Investments,’ has opened a new branch in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) recently.
The new office will enable Fisher Investments to engage prospective clients in DIFC and the region, said a statement.
With offices in the US and subsidiaries in the UK and Australia, Fisher Investments views DIFC as a major commercial hub of the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, and a gateway to growing its business operations regionally, it said.
Justin Arbuckle, executive vice president, said: “DIFC’s stable political and economic environment, free economic system, and central location have made it an attractive destination for us to open a branch.”
Fisher Investments is a leading independent investment adviser, with more than 26,000 private clients and over 100 large institutional clients.
Its primary offices are located in California and Washington State, with global presence for over a decade. It serves diverse investors including high net worth individuals, private corporations, public and multi-employer employee benefit funds, foundations, endowments, and sovereign wealth funds.
Jeffrey Singer, CEO of DIFC Authority, said: “We are pleased to welcome Fisher Investments to DIFC. The establishment of their office here is a positive development which will help to diversify the asset management offering at the centre.
“At the same time, DIFC provides Fisher with a stable, supportive, and secure base to develop their business and will help to improve their access to Middle Eastern, Asian and African markets.” - TradeArabia News Service
