NEW YORK, Dec. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Semper Capital Management, a private, veteran-owned, and minority-owned boutique fixed income investment manager based in New York, announced today that the firm has been recognized as one of industry's top places to work in the 2017 Pensions & Investments' Best Places to Work in Money Management Awards.
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.
One of the core pillars of Semper's corporate philosophy is giving back. Twice a year, the entire firm volunteers as a team with Habitat for Humanity NYC building and repairing homes, and the team comes together throughout the year at charity events supporting programs aiding transitioning military veterans. Semper also supports employees' individual philanthropic endeavors. The #sempergivesback mentality resonates on a day-to-day basis, and it is this, combined with remote work opportunities and full coverage of health insurance premiums, that makes Semper a gratifying place to work, according to employees.
"From day one, management has prioritized community service and taking care of the team," said CEO Greg Parsons. "The net-net is a solid work ethic rooted in charity that lends to exceptional productivity."
"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," Resnick said.
