Fisher Investments, founded by Ken Fisher in 1979, is a renowned money manager that has recently hit all-time highs in the financial market. The firm's Founder, Executive Chairman, and Co-Chief Investment Officer, Ken Fisher, has been actively discussing these achievements and their implications for investors. With a focus on providing comprehensive investment services, Fisher Investments has attracted the attention of private-equity firm Advent International, which is currently in talks to acquire the company.
However, Fisher Investments strongly denies any acquisition discussions, as stated in a press release following a Journal article that claimed otherwise. While the potential acquisition remains uncertain, it has been speculated that Ken Fisher might consider selling a minority stake in the company to investors.
Despite these rumors, both Fisher Investments and Advent International have officially stated that they are not engaged in any deal talks. The Wall Street Journal had previously reported on their alleged negotiations, but the firms have debunked these claims.
