Gregg Fisher is the Founder of Gerstein Fisher, a firm that offers integrated tax and investment management services. Throughout his career, Gregg has worked to bridge the gap between academic theory and real-world investment practice. He has spearheaded research projects on areas of study including the efficacy of momentum and valuation models, tax-efficient investing, the impact of investor behavior on investment returns, and the persistence of certain investment factors across global equity markets.
In 2009 he formalized the firm’s collaboration with a select circle of noted academics by establishing the Gerstein Fisher Research Center. The Center’s mission is to investigate critical issues in finance and risk faced by individual investors through pioneering research that brings an academic theory to bear on contemporary financial practice. Through the Center, Gregg has partnered with leading academics in the areas of behavioral finance, risk engineering and economics to research topics including the phenomenon of momentum in both domestic and international equity markets, and the replication of hedge fund returns through more liquid, transparent investment strategies and the practical applications of risk parity optimality.
Gregg holds a degree in finance from the State University of New York at Buffalo and obtained a certificate in financial planning from New York University. A CFA charter holder, Gregg is a member of the CFA Institute, the New York Society of Security Analysts (NYSSA), and the Institute for Quantitative Research in Finance (the Q Group). He is an active member of Vistage International, which specializes in executive leadership development and CEO coaching and the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO), a global non-profit organization made up of company leaders from 100 countries.
Gregg is a member of the Dean’s Advisory Council for the University at Buffalo School of Management and has served as an adjunct professor teaching a graduate course in Investment Management at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering at New York University (formerly NYU Polytechnic). He has guest lectured at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Business and the University of Buffalo, among other institutions.
