DENVER, December 11, 2018—For the third consecutive year, 361 Capital, a leading boutique asset manager, won a Pensions & Investments Best Places to Work in Money Management award. Pensions and Investments is the global news source for money management.
The 2018 award was part of Pensions & Investments’ seventh-annual survey and recognition program, which is dedicated to identifying and recognizing the best employers in the money management industry.
“It’s truly an honor to be a part of P&I’s Best Places to Work list for the third year in a row,” said Tom Florence, chairman and CEO of 361 Capital. “At 361 Capital, we want to build a culture where our employees continue to learn and develop new skills. Having entrepreneurial values encourages new ideas and allows everyone to contribute to our success.”
“Again this year, it is clear that what makes firms great employers isn’t necessarily about money management in particular. Many firms were cited for their culture and benefits,” said P&I Editor Amy B. Resnick. “Our surveys found that the employers on the list were much more likely to offer things like flex time, telecommuting, child and elder care, family leave, job sharing and adoption assistance.”
“Employees at these top-ranked firms most often cited, their colleagues, the firm’s culture and the benefits as the things that make it a great place to work,” she said.
Pensions & Investments partnered with Best Companies Group, an independent research firm specializing in identifying great places to work, to conduct a two-part survey process of employers and their employees.
