Fisher Funds Makes Senior Appointment

Fisher Funds Management has announced the appointment of one of the investment industry’s most experienced professionals Murray Brown, as a senior analyst with the company.

Mr Brown, who has over 27 years of involvement in the New Zealand share market, will work with Fisher Funds’ Managing Director Carmel Fisher, primarily in the management of the company’s New Zealand portfolios.

Mr Brown has previously held senior analyst roles in a number of share broking firms, and for the past ten years has been Head of Research at First NZ Capital. He was a finalist in the INFINZ Research Analyst of the Year award in 2006 and has consistently ranked as one of the top three analysts in his sectors.

Carmel Fisher welcomed the appointment. “I am delighted that an investment professional of Murray’s calibre and experience has agreed to join us.

“I know that his expertise, combined with the talents of our existing Fisher Funds team, will enable us to maintain our successful track record. The wisdom gained from investing in companies over a long period of time, through good times and bad, will ultimately be positively reflected in the returns we can achieve for our investors.”
