An Industry Icon and Pioneer
Ken Fisher's theoretical work in the 1970's pioneered a tool known as the Price-to-Sales Ratio, now an established element of modern financial curriculum. His more recent area of study has focused on the emerging field of behavioral finance. Ken wrote Forbes magazine’s “Portfolio Strategy” column for more than 30 years, making him the longest running columnist in the magazine's 90+ year history. He has written 11 books on investing and wealth management, including four New York Times bestsellers. In 2010, Ken was selected by Investment Advisor as one of the industry's most influential people over the past 30 years. A year later, he was included on Investment Advisor's list of the 25 most influential people in and around the adviser universe.**
