Penserra Named to 2017 Pension and Investments Best Places to Work in Money Management Award

New York, NY (June 12, 2018) – Penserra, a global financial services firm, has been named to the list of the 2017 Best Places to Work in Money Management awards announced today by Pension and Investments.
Presented by Pensions & Investments, the global news source of money management, the sixth-annual survey and recognition program is dedicated to identifying and recognizing the best employers in the money management industry.
Earlier this year at the time of the survey, Penserra had approximately 40 employees, but has since doubled to approximately 80 employees because of the recent acquisition of Cheevers & Company. George Madrigal, President and CEO of Penserra, said, “Our firm distinguishes itself by promoting a healthy work-life balance and acknowledging that our employees are what make this firm successful.” He added, “Penserra has been able to hire top quality talent in every department because of our unwavering commitment to recruiting as a source of significant competitive advantage.” Penserra views the intensity of commitment by its employees as the cornerstone of its corporate culture. The firm also promotes many employee friendly policies including: telecommuting, diverse hiring, team building events, charitable giving, and educational assistance.
“All of the firms being recognized this year are leaders when it comes to creating a great place to work,” said P&I Editor Amy Resnick. “It was great to see reflected in the survey comments how significant it is for employees to feel valued by their employer. It shows what really makes a company a best place to work. 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.”
Pensions and 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. 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 and those named to the list.
