NEW YORK, Sept. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Gregg S. Fisher, President & Chief Investment Officer of independent investment management firm Gerstein Fisher will become a regular contributor to the CFA Institute blog, Inside Investing. Inside Investing is a selective forum for leading investment practitioners (all CFA Charterholders) to share practical insights on current issues in finance and investing with a global audience. The blog aims to elevate interesting and compelling opinions, educate the public about investment topics, and give practical tools for investors to use.
Mr. Fisher is frequently called upon by television and print media for his insights on a wide range of finance and investing topics. In 2009 he founded the Gerstein Fisher Research Center as a collaboration between Gerstein Fisher and a select group of leading academics in the areas of finance, risk engineering and economics to investigate critical issues in finance and risk faced by individual investors.
"At Gerstein Fisher, we hold the same belief in the critical importance of investor education as CFA Institute," said Mr. Fisher. "To the extent that research we are doing on our clients' behalf has implications and applications for a broader base of investors and investment practitioners, we are excited to be able to share these insights through as respected a forum as CFA Institute."
