NEW YORK, December 14, 2020 /3BL Media/ – Ninety One, an active, global investment manager’s North America franchise, Ninety One North America, is recognized in the 2020 Best Places to Work in Money Management awards announced by Pensions & Investments in its annual survey.

Ninety One is dedicated to delivering compelling outcomes for its clients, managing more than $145 billion as of June 30, 2020. In the Americas, Ninety One offers a range of active investment strategies and solutions spanning equity, fixed income, multi-asset, sustainable and alternatives led by specialist teams that invest across global, emerging and frontier markets.

For more than a decade, the firm has been committed to clients in the US, Canada and Latin America, developing trusted partnerships by delivering local expertise with a global platform. 

As reflected in this survey, Ninety One steadfastly believes in providing an environment where individuals have the freedom to be themselves. This results in a culture of innovation and collaboration where colleagues can collectively achieve together without sacrificing individual selves.

"A cornerstone of Ninety One is the freedom to create,” CEO, Ninety One North America, Philip Anker stated. “We have established an environment that encourages our people to think differently, own and cultivate ideas, and provide exceptional service to our clients.”

“In this very unusual year, we learned again that employers that consider the overall wellbeing of their employees are regarded well.  The best employers in 2020 are those that have stepped up with policies and practices to support and protect employees’ physical and emotional health, while continuing to keep the focus on clients’ needs,” said P&I Editor Amy B. Resnick. “Our surveys found that the employers on the list were likely to work hard to sustain their corporate cultures, even during times of pandemic lockdowns and continuing to work from home in many cases.” 

More than 70% of Ninety One North America employees participated in the survey.

Anker further commented, “Our global and regional leadership teams understand that strong corporate culture is a business imperative. As a principles-led organization, we seek to create a work environment that empowers our to support each other, serve our clients and engage with our communities." 

Pensions & Investments partnered with Best Companies Group, a research firm specializing in identifying great places to work, to conduct a two-part survey process of employers and their employees. The first piece consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics, worth approximately 25% of the evaluation. The second section consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies.
