John Fischer, CFA® CFP®
Chief Investment Officer
“The secret of living is giving.” – Tony Robbins
As the Chief Investment Officer (CIO) at Mosaic Family Wealth, John leads the firm’s Investment Committee in shaping the firm’s investment philosophy and strategy for client portfolios. His responsibilities include portfolio management, investment research, and market strategy. John also serves on Mosaic’s Leadership Team helping to guide strategic direction at the firm.
John brings nearly 20 years of industry experience to Mosaic, most recently serving as the CIO of a private wealth management firm. John has cultivated a positive reputation as someone who is able to simplify complex issues for his clients through thoughtful educational approaches.
John’s calling to wealth management started at an early age with a bubbling curiosity for the markets, how they work, and what makes them go up and down. He viewed the opportunity to work with individuals in the pursuit of some of life’s most precious goals as one of the greatest ways to serve others and make a real difference in the lives of people in his community. While having a deep understanding of investments is a core responsibility of John’s work, he is most passionate about helping people understand how emotions relating to investments can be more important than the investments themselves in achieving financial goals.
When not at work, you can find John spending time with his wife Kelly, and their two children, Blake and Brooke. On the weekends’ John is typically at local parks chasing after the kids or racing them to the playground. As an avid runner, John has completed five marathons, including the Boston Marathon in 2019. He’s a sports enthusiast, especially the St Louis Blues, and loves to travel. John has served as a big brother in the Big Brothers, Big Sisters program in St. Louis.
John is a Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA®) and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®). He has a bachelor’s degree in finance and a minor in accounting from Saint Louis University.
