G. L. Fisher Capital Management, LLC
Focused, Prudent, Steadfast
Located in downtown Flint at the historic Mott Foundation Building, our firm is thrilled to be part of the ongoing revitalization of the I-75 corridor between Detroit and Flint, Michigan. We have clients across the country, from coast-to-coast, and work seamlessly with them regardless of geographic location. This is all part of our commitment to innovation and doing things differently. “ I am a bit of a contrarian,” company founder Gary L. Fisher says. "I like to look at what is not being done in the industry, as much as what is happening. As hockey player, Wayne Gretzky famously said, 'I try to skate to where the puck is going, not where it’s been.' This forward thinking approach has the potential to pay dividends clients and make their experience with our firm a satisfying and positive one."
Although the firm’s name has changed a few times along the way, we’ve been in business since 1992, helping people make smart and informed decisions about their money. This diverse experience has allowed us to shepherd clients through a host of tumultuous global, market, and geo-political upheavals along the way. The dot com bubble and crash, the mortgage/credit crash, two global wars, the horrendous terrorist attack of 9/11, two significant recessions, the ‘Great’ Recession, numerous market corrections, the end of pensions in America, numerous corporate failures, and the General Motors and Chrysler bankruptcies. From the end of the Bush Sr. administration, through the advent of the Clinton Presidency, through George W. Bush’s run as Commander-in-Chief, Barack Obama’s term, and now a new and potentially eventful presidential administration, it’s been a challenging run, and we’ve seen A LOT!
However, throughout these events, we’ve helped our clients maintain focus on the long run, and their ultimate goals and dreams. This isn’t always easy. Another poignant quote, also part of our lexicon, is John Lennon's lyric, “ Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” We know this to be true from personal experience! When life hands us a surprise (both good and bad varieties) we are there to help our clients. With open minds, helping hearts, and the fortitude that comes from experience, we are there for our people – rain or shine, in good times and bad, and with the tools, talent, and resources to help them withstand whatever they might be facing financially. If we’ve learned one thing over the last quarter of a century it is that RESILIENCE alone is omnipotent. Resilience borne of a positive attitude, honest and straight–forward, no "BS" communication, and strength of purpose. These are the things we strive to bring to our clients, and these are the things that we think matter most.
Because nothing stay the same, we are always looking for innovative solutions to the ongoing challenges we all face. New products, new approaches, innovative strategies, and cutting edge tactics and tools are all part of the arsenal we deploy when looking to add value to clients. It’s about solving problems, moving on, and then confronting the new issues that arise along the way. Innovation is a process where we stand on the shoulders of giants who have preceded us, but always with an eye for what they might have missed, or what wasn’t revealed initially. Innovation is above all else a team process. It’s not about a flash of genius, but rather the accumulation of known facts, paired with new approaches, applied to unique situations that creates the synergy known as innovation.
At G. L. Fisher Capital Management, we believe that this structure can potentially help you to create a more confident and successful approach as you work toward managing your pursuits and dreams of prosperity.
