Son of restaurant entrepreneur Isaac Fischmann, the first owner of the famous Chez Henry, Fernando graduated as a biochemist from the Universidad de Chile. While he did work for a time in the family business, his own entrepreneurship vein crystallized in 1980 with Inmobiliaria El Plomo, the society he founded –that his sister Myriam latter joined- and where he latter developed several land lots (for example, in La Dehesa he paved what today is the Los Trapenses road).
