NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--WisdomTree, Inc. (NYSE: WT), a global financial innovator, announced today it has been named a 2023 Best Places to Work in Money Management by Pensions & Investments for the fourth year in a row and the seventh year since the award was created. The annual survey and recognition program is dedicated to identifying and recognizing the best employers in the money management industry. WisdomTree was ranked second within the category for managers with 100 - 499 employees, the second consecutive year earning a ranking among the top five employers.
This recognition was awarded in a year when WisdomTree completed its 12th consecutive quarter of net inflows, achieved a best-in-class pace of organic growth among its public asset manager peers and attained record-high assets under management (AUM). This success is driven by an impressive product lineup that has generated broad and deep inflows across the entire suite and increased traction with current partners in its managed models franchise. In addition, WisdomTree accelerated its position within the digital assets and blockchain landscape with the launch of WisdomTree Prime™, a personal finance app that empowers users to save, spend and invest and brings tokenization and blockchain-enabled finance to the center of a consumer’s financial life.
Jonathan Steinberg, WisdomTree Founder and CEO, said, “Our ability to lead the industry in tokenization and blockchain-enabled finance, while also experiencing industry-leading organic growth, stems from the dedication and ingenuity of our team. I am immensely proud of the inclusive and purpose-driven culture we’ve built, which is the foundation upon which WisdomTree continues to grow.”
WisdomTree believes that its employees are its greatest asset and offers numerous professional development opportunities, encouraging diversity of thought through regular training sessions, roundtable discussions and mentoring programs. WisdomTree fosters an inclusive workplace and encourages cultural awareness and equal opportunity throughout the organization, including through its Women’s Initiative Network (WIN) and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Council.
WisdomTree embraces a “Work Smart” philosophy where time in the office generally is not prescribed, and individuals and teams are empowered to determine how they work best, based on their role, while remaining accountable for achieving individual and team outcomes. To foster employee well-being and a healthy work-life balance, WisdomTree offers counseling services, weekly meditation and daily yoga, unlimited vacation and additional company “Wellness Days,” which are scheduled office closures around major market holidays for employees to collectively disconnect and rejuvenate.
“We are honored to be recognized on the ‘Best Places to Work’ list for yet another year,” said Jarrett Lilien, WisdomTree President and COO. “This win is a reflection of the collaborative and empowering culture we strive to create and the collective mission of our team to think big and drive positive change for investors, advisors and their clients.”
This year, WisdomTree launched its “Roots” summer internship program to supplement its traditional internship opportunities offered to college juniors and seniors. The Roots program offers students in their last two years of high school and early college years a unique growth and professional development experience, which includes learning about WisdomTree’s business and gaining exposure to the financial services industry.
“Pensions & Investments is proud to honor the Best Places to Work in Money Management for the 12th year. A strong workplace culture that supports talent, advocates progress and drives innovation is paramount to driving the best outcomes and these asset managers demonstrate that. Congratulations to the 2023 honorees for their commitment to employee well-being, attractive incentive structures and talent development that demonstrate how investing in your employees can elevate our industry to greater heights,” said Pensions & Investments President and Publisher Nikki Pirrello.
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 part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part 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.
