CFI is a Fixed Income Asset Manager with a singular focus on tax-efficient Muni bond investing. It aims to maximize individual efficiency through an active, flexible approach to managing portfolios tailored to each client's risk-return preferences. Throughout decades of our experience, it has become apparent that passive management (i.e., buy and bury) has provided minimal benefit to the investor. Charles Fish Investments, Inc. (CFI) believes that only active management with vigilance and hard work will produce fine structure, superior quality, and superior performance.
CFI’s clients have benefited from this philosophy since the Company's founding in 1984. After fourteen years in the securities business, founder Charles “Skip” Fish recognized that clients needed individually tailored portfolios for their bond assets. They also needed the expertise and market skills of municipal bond traders and analysts in an arrangement that would align the interests of the client and adviser. Skip believed that the best means of securing these was to found a registered investment management firm.
We are extremely conservative.
We are extremely aggressive.
Although these statements seem to contradict one another, they are in fact complimentary. We want the best of both worlds: portfolios that mitigate risk while providing competitive returns. At CFI, we believe it is not necessary to accept greater risk in order to achieve higher rewards. Instead it requires in-depth research, consultation with the right specialists, and securing accurate first hand information. Wise decisions are informed decisions. Our philosophy, therefore, is to apply that knowledge to each and every portfolio with the intensity required to secure the best results.
