New York, NY (Dec. 14, 2020)– Xponance®, Inc. has been named one of the 2020 Best Places to Work in Money Management for firms with 20 to 49 employees, announced by Pensions & Investments today. This is the firm’s first award.

Xponance® is a 100% employee owned, minority and woman owned investment management company managing $11.4 billion in assets for institutional plan sponsors.

“In this very unusual year, we learned again that employers that consider the overall wellbeing of their employees are regarded well.  The best employers in 2020 are those that have stepped up with policies and practices to support and protect employees’ physical and emotional health, while continuing to keep the focus on clients’ needs,” said P&I Editor Amy B. Resnick.  “Our surveys found that the employers on the list were likely to work hard to sustain their corporate cultures, even during times of pandemic lockdowns and continuing to work from home in many cases.”

“We are truly honored to be recognized,” stated Tina Byles Williams, CEO and Chief Investment Officer. “Maintaining a work culture that values and supports everyone is critical to achieving the best results for our clients.  During the pandemic we have worked even harder as a team. We are fortunate to have such a vibrant, talented team of professionals.”

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.
