We are proud to unveil the 2019 InvestmentNews Best Places to Work for Financial Advisers.
This recognition program honors financial advisory firms that empower their employees to provide clients with the best possible investment and financial planning advice. This is by far one of the most exciting initiatives ever launched by InvestmentNews. Itís conducted in partnership with the employee survey firm Best Companies Group.
The 75 organizations that made the cut scored the highest all around when we evaluated their internal practices and surveyed their employees. We focused our assessment on a number of key areas, including quality of leadership, pay and benefits, and work-life balance. We also looked at how firms valued diversity and inclusion among their ranks.
Itís our hope that our list of the top 75 organizations to work for as a financial adviser will become a go-to resource for those seeking a superior work environment and those who want to see how their firmís practices stack up against other firms.
Firms selected for the 2019 InvestmentNews Best Places to Work for Financial Advisers list will be celebrated at a Top Advisory Firm Summit along with those receiving InvestmentNews Best Practices and Top Technology recognition later this year. The event will be held in Chicago on Nov. 13.
The future of the financial advice profession hinges on our ability to create a great work environment ó not just for existing employees but for the next generation of financial advisers as well. InvestmentNews is proud to highlight the efforts of those that are leading the way in this direction.
