San Francisco, CA (December 2022) – Bailard, a values-driven asset and wealth manager in the San Francisco Bay Area, has been included in the 2022 Best Places to Work in Money Management awards, announced by Pensions & Investments this week. The firm is honored to be ranked 4th in its category (of companies with 50-99 employees) and, notably, this marks the fifth consecutive year Pensions & Investments has recognized Bailard as a Best Place to Work.


Presented by Pensions & Investments, the global news source of money management, the 11th annual survey and recognition program is dedicated to identifying and recognizing the best employers in the money management industry.


This recognition follows with Bailard’s commitment to its values on behalf of our colleagues, clients, and community. Each day, our employees show their commitment to the core tenets of accountability, compassion, courage, excellence, fairness, and independence. These values serve as a foundation to help create strong, prosperous relationships with clients and to also establish a safe and thoughtful work environment for employees.


“As their employees attest, the companies named to this year’s Best Places to Work list demonstrate a commitment to building and maintaining a strong workplace culture,’’ said P&I Executive Editor Julie Tatge. “Even as firms grappled with volatile markets and stresses from the pandemic, their employees said they felt strong support from their managers, enabling them to do their best work.’’


Pensions & Investments is proud to honor the Best Places to Work in Money Management for the 11th year. A strong workplace culture that supports talent, advocates progress, and drives innovation is paramount to driving the best outcomes. These asset managers demonstrate that. Congratulations to the 2022 honorees for fostering healthy and inclusive workplaces in the face of a rapidly evolving and challenging market,” said Chief Operating Officer of the publication, Nikki Pirrello.


“I humbly thank our employees for their continued exceptional efforts on behalf of our culture as well as our clients,” said Chief Executive Officer Sonya Mughal. “We pursue excellence across different functions and facets of our business. Yet, it is the manner in which we treat each other that allows us to distinguish ourselves. One of my goals as CEO is to uphold a considerate and welcoming environment, and receiving this multi-year honor from P&I stands as a strong testament. It’s our values that connect us to each other and to our clients.”


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 evaluated each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. This was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The remaining 75% of the evaluation consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies.
