Firm is a Four-Time Honoree
Bridgeway Capital Management (Bridgeway), an independent, statistically driven investment manager, announced it has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Money Management by Pensions & Investments, an international newspaper dedicated to institutional investing. This is the fourth year that Bridgeway has been recognized by Pensions & Investments as one of the top employers in the money management industry.
Bridgeway ranked 3 among 19 firms in the category of managers with 20-49 employees. Last year, Bridgeway ranked fourth among the five winning firms in the same category. Prior to this, Bridgeway earned first and third place rankings in 2015 and 2014, respectively.
“We’re pleased to receive this honor once again from Pensions & Investments. Bridgeway’s mission states that our greatest resource is people and we strive to put that in action every day” said Tammira Philippe, Bridgeway’s President and CEO. “We’re continuously pushing ourselves to find new ways to support each team member to reach their full potential, which in turn fosters a culture of inclusion and innovation throughout the company.”
According to Bridgeway’s biennial survey, Partners cite the ability to pursue meaningful and challenging work as the top reason for staying with the firm, followed by the sense of purpose they feel in their jobs. Bridgeway’s culture is built on transparency and open communication, as well as trust and accountability.
“Service to our clients, colleagues, and community is one of our core values, and we challenge each team to lead one firm-wide service project every year,” Philippe noted. “This past year, the impact of Hurricane Harvey pushed us to up our game even more. We established a fund to support our Partners who were directly affected by the storm, and we allocated two extra days of service as a company in place of staff meetings.”
Philippe noted that 2018 has been a big year of change for the firm, which included expanding its investment capabilities to include international equity strategies and hiring Jacob Pozharny, Ph.D., to helm these new international investing efforts. The ability to grow the company while maintaining high levels of satisfaction for its Partners and clients is a point of pride for Bridgeway—and a top priority for Philippe and the leadership team in the years to come.
Since 2012, Pensions & Investments has ranked U.S. money managers based on the results of employer and employee surveys conducted by its partner on the project, Best Companies Group. An anonymous employee survey, which aims to evaluate employee engagement and satisfaction, accounts for 75% of a firm’s score; an employer survey, which evaluates workplace policies, practices, benefits and demographics, makes up 25%. Survey respondents cite their colleagues, their firm’s culture and their benefits as factors that make top-ranked organizations great places to work.
