Forbes columnist, author to speak at Ashford University

CLINTON — Ken Fisher, founder, chairman and CEO of Fisher Investments, will give a special presentation at Ashford University on Saturday, May 3, as part of the Forbes School of Business at Ashford University Speaker Series.

The presentation is set for 12:45 to 1:30 p.m. in Mullany Theater, followed by a VIP reception and meet-and-greet event from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. in room C3600 of St. Clare Hall. The public is invited to both free events, but an RSVP is required for entry.

Perhaps best known for his Forbes “Portfolio Strategy” column, Fisher’s 29 years of high-profile market calls make him the third longest-running columnist in Forbes history. He is also a best-selling author, having written 10 books, including four New York Times bestsellers. His latest book, “The Little Book of Market Myths,” was published in 2013. In 1984, his “Super Stocks” was that year’s best-selling stock market book.

As an investment guru, Fisher has been published, interviewed and/or been written about in numerous major American, British and German finance and business periodicals. He writes a weekly column for Germany’s Focus Money magazine as well as a monthly column on the UK’s Interactive Investor website. From 2005 to 2012, his Forbes market forecasts were among the most accurate as reviewed by the third-party CXO Advisory Group whose “Guru Grades” rate the accuracy of publicly available expert forecasts on the stock market.

Fisher heads Fisher Investments, a money management firm serving large corporate and public pension plans, as well as endowments, foundations and high net worth individuals across the US, UK and Canada.

Ashford University’s campus is open and will host hundreds of graduating students on Saturday, May 3. Satellite parking locations will be available for those guests who do not require special accommodations. Parking is available at 91 Sixth Ave North.
