Ken Fisher’s Fortune to More Than Double on Private Equity Sale


Among the investors in Advent vehicles are Mousse Partners, the family office of brothers Alain and Gerard Wertheimer, who own luxury brand Chanel.

A native of San Francisco, Fisher was trained in the markets and investing by his father, Philip, a well-known money manager and author and proponent of growth investing. Ken started his namesake advisory in 1979. He published his first book, Super Stocks, and began writing a column for Forbes five years later.

Fisher, who relocated his firm from California to Washington state in the mid 2010s seeking a friendlier business climate, moved headquarters again last year, this time to a suburb of Dallas. The move was prompted by a Washington Supreme Court ruling that the state’s plan to implement a 7% capital gains tax on its wealthiest citizens was constitutional.

Fisher announced the move with a sarcastic statement blaming the court’s “wisdom and knowledge of the law” for the company’s decision.
