Legal & General Investment Management America Named Among the Best Places to Work in Money Management by Pensions & Investments for Second Consecutive Year
LGIMA consistently recognized for strong company culture
CHICAGO, IL - December 11, 2019 – Legal & General Investment Management America (LGIMA), an investment solutions provider with nearly $210 billion in assets under management, has been recognized by Pensions & Investments (P&I) as one of the Best Places to Work in Money Management for 2019. This is the second consecutive year that the asset management firm has been selected.
The eighth-annual Best Places to Work in Money Management survey and recognition program is dedicated to identifying and awarding the best employers within the money management industry. For LGIMA, that means maintaining and building upon its corporate culture centered around helping clients achieve their long-term financial goals. The firm’s purpose, combined with its values of trust, listening, learning, diversity and embracing change creates a positive culture for employees, clients and the broader community.
“Our employees are our greatest asset,” said Aaron Meder, CEO of LGIMA. “When we invest in our people, we invest in a positive client experience. As we continue to grow, we make it a priority to maintain the client-centric and collaborative culture we are continuing to build upon today.”
For the second year in a row, LGIMA was recognized by P&I in part due to the firm’s employee benefits including its “Dress For Your Day” policy that allows dress code flexibility and its annual Giving Campaign, which incorporates matching donations and time off for volunteering. Other benefits include competitive paid time off, a student loan paydown program, wellness allowance, gender-neutral parental leave, tuition and professional certification reimbursement.
LGIMA encourages its employees to be active in the Chicago community through educational partnerships with Spark Chicago, Year Up, DePaul University and Invest for Kids. In addition to these charitable initiatives, within the last year, the firm launched a rotational analyst program for recent graduates, expanded its Women’s Collective Group to foster diversity and inclusion in the workplace and created a Client Connect Series that brings external clients into the office for firm-wide teach-ins.
"After eight years, we have heard about amazing perks and benefits being offered by the organizations that are named the best places to work," said P&I Editor Amy B. Resnick. "But it is clear that intentional work being done to create workplaces with common goals, trust and community is more important. This year's winners stand out for their commitment to their people and the communities in which they operate."
P&I 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 to identify companies whose dedicated efforts to create a supportive culture for employees stood out among competitors.
