BlackRock’s Peter Fisher to Take Dartmouth Teaching RoleSree Vidya Bhaktavatsalam
Peter Fisher, the former head of fixed income at BlackRock Inc. who in February joined the company group that provides market research and analysis, will take a teaching role at Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business.
Fisher starts as senior fellow at the Center for Global Business and Government on July 1, Hanover, New Hampshire-based Dartmouth said today in a statement. Lauren Post, a spokeswoman for New York-based BlackRock, said in an interview that Fisher will continue as a senior director at the BlackRock Investment Institute.
“Peter’s presence will give Tuck students access to someone with experience at the highest levels of both private asset management and government economic policy,” Matthew J. Slaughter, faculty director of the center and the associate dean of faculty at Tuck, said in the statement.
Fisher, 57, is a former Treasury undersecretary for domestic finance, and before that spent 16 years at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. He joined BlackRock in 2004 and was later named head of the money manager’s fixed-income unit. He moved to the investment institute after leading a reorganization at BlackRock’s $1.3 trillion bond division.
BlackRock’s Chief Executive Officer Laurence D. Fink said at the time that the move to the institute allowed Fisher “more freedom” from day-to-day management responsibilities.
BlackRock, the world’s biggest money manager, has $3.94 trillion in assets. The firm, co-founded by Fink in 1988, in 2011 started the institute to provide clients with investment analysis and research.
