A Great Place to Work!
By: BAM Team
We pride ourselves on having a workplace culture that empowers a diverse range of professionals to reach their highest potential. Since our inception, we have focused on creating an environment that attracts bright, driven and creative professionals, who are relentless in their pursuit of excellence and committed to winning on behalf of our investors every day.
Given our focus on building a positive workplace culture, we are excited to announce that we have been recognized as a Great Place to Work-Certified™ company.
This recognition was granted entirely based on employee feedback. Great Place to Work deployed a rigorous, research-backed employee experience survey to BAM team members across roles, ranks and regions. The survey results confirmed that 97% of BAM employees believe our firm is a great place to work, compared to the U.S. workplace average of 59%.
Across the board, 98% of BAM employees say:
- Management is honest and ethical in its business practices;
- Our facilities contribute to a good working environment; and
- They are proud to tell others they work at BAM.
At BAM, six core Principles guide our teams’ decision-making every day. These Principles have helped us build a culture that is distinctly different from other asset management firms – one that rewards partnership, humility, initiative, innovative risk-taking, personal development and adaptability and that drives strong performance for our investors.
Partnership in particular is fundamental to the relationships between BAM team members, partners and clients. We emphasize transparency and collaboration because we believe open and honest dialogue generates the strongest investment ideas. We encourage every one of our team members to think and act like long-term owners of our business, making decisions to maximize benefits for all.
Our focus on learning and development fuels our continuous growth and improvement. We understand that complacency kills, so we take initiative to uncover opportunities that others miss and operate with a sense of urgency to unlock the strongest investments for our clients.
Our consistent performance is a result of the dedication of our world-class talent. Across all of our disciplines, we are united in our drive to be the best, and we know we are unbeatable when we work as one.
This is one of many recognitions our firm and our employees have received in recent years. In 2017 and 2018, we were recognized among the ‘Best Medium Workplaces™’ in the U.S. – and also among the ‘Best Workplaces™ in Financial Services & Insurance’ in 2018. Most recently, Nina Zhao, one of our Systematic Portfolio Managers in the UK, was included in The Hedge Fund Journal’s 50 Leading Women in Hedge Funds 2020 report, and our Global Head of Business Development, Jennifer Blake, and our former Chief Operating Officer in Asia, Julie Chang, were recognized in the 2019 report.
