NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Investment management firm Gerstein Fisher today announced that Chief Investment Officer Gregg S. Fisher has been named to Barron’s America’s Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors for 2016, with a rank of 12, up from 14 in 2015 and 17 in 2014. These rankings reflect the volume of assets overseen by the advisors and their teams, revenues generated for the firms, and the quality of the advisors’ practices. This is the seventh consecutive year that Gerstein Fisher has appeared on the list.
“We could not be more pleased to once again be included as one of Barron's top independent financial advisors,” said Mr. Fisher. “Providing our clients with unbiased counsel and thoughtful, research-based investment strategies remains our central focus, and it’s an extra reward when we are recognized within our industry for serving our clients well.”
In addition to its broader advisory services, Gerstein Fisher leverages a proprietary Multi-Factor® approach to provide investors with diversified exposure to growth-oriented and real estate securities. This quantitative, model-based methodology is designed to add value over benchmarks by tilting portfolios toward investment characteristics, or “factors” that include, but are not limited to, profitability, price momentum, relative valuation and company size.
The Gerstein Fisher Multi-Factor® Growth Equity Fund (GFMGX) invests in U.S. growth companies, the Gerstein Fisher Multi-Factor® International Growth Fund (GFIGX) invests in international growth companies, and the Gerstein Fisher Multi-Factor® Global Real Estate Securities Fund (GFMRX) is one of very few global REIT funds to employ a quantitative management approach.
