John Fisher believes in putting his money where his client is. Called “eating your own cooking” in industry parlance, it is intended to inspire investor confidence that he will be sure to act in their best interest.
It’s a practice that helped Mr. Fisher launch his boutique investment firm, Toronto’s Bridgeport Asset Management Inc.
Before that he worked at Clairvest Group Inc., the private equity firm founded by Joseph Rotman. Mr. Fisher, who is also an accountant and chartered financial analyst, was given an equity participation in Clairvest’s portfolio, and he watched his net worth grow.
