BOSTON (Reuters) – Boston Mayor Marty Walsh on Wednesday said he has asked the city’s retirement board to end its relationship with money manager Kenneth Fisher, who is under fire for comments he made at a recent investment conference.
“Boston will not invest in companies led by people who treat women like commodities. Reports of Ken Fisher’s comments and poor judgment are incredibly disturbing, and I have asked our retirement board to take a vote to end any relationship with Fisher Investments,” Walsh said in a statement.
