To participate, a firm had to have at least 20 employees in the U.S., have at least $100 million of discretionary, institutional assets under management or advisement and be in business for at least one year. The data for the survey was collected from July 18, 2023 through August 8, 2023. Participating firms completed a questionnaire on firm’s policies, practice, benefits and demographics. Additionally, employees at participating firms were emailed an engagement and satisfaction survey. NISA paid a standard fee for use of P&I’s Best Places to Work in Money Management logo.
