Ken Fisher, Building From the Ground Up
This week in our Masters in Business radio podcast, we speak with Ken Fisher. He manages $68 billion for Fisher Investments, is the author of 11 books, and is just weeks away from being the longest-running columnist for Forbes magazine.
Fisher describes building a firm from the ground up, having “no idea what he was doing,” as he worked to create one of the largest registered investment advisers in the country. Despite calling himself the “Forrest Gump of finance,” he talks about the importance of excellence. The conversation is a little bit inside baseball, but it is fascinating nonetheless.
Next week, we speak with author Roger Lowenstein, who will discuss his latest book, "America’s Bank: The Epic Struggle to Create the Federal Reserve."
