NEW YORK, LONDON, 14 December 2020 – PineBridge Investments (‘PineBridge’), a private, global asset manager focused on active, high-conviction investing, is honored to be recognized by both Pensions & Investments and Citywire for its commitment to empowering employees and fostering a collaborative and inclusive culture.
PineBridge was recognized by Pensions & Investments’ Best Places to Work, among companies with 100-499 employees. This is the firm’s first year participating in the annual survey, which identifies and recognizes the best employers in the asset management industry. In the publication’s review of PineBridge’s survey responses, employees noted, “The firm really has a ‘we are in this together’ mentality where I feel nothing but support from those I work with.” To determine the rankings, Pensions & Investments partnered with Best Companies Group to conduct a two-part survey process, which ranks workplace policies and practices along with employee experience.
PineBridge is also delighted to be recognized by Citywire’s inaugural Gender Diversity Awards, winning two accolades for Best Gender Representation (20-50 managers) and Regional Leader Asia (20-50 managers). The Gender Diversity Awards aim to recognize the progress made by fund management groups on the representation of women. To determine the awards, Citywire qualitatively and quantitatively assessed PineBridge’s approach to Diversity and Inclusion, company-wide gender diversity practices, and how PineBridge incorporates gender issues into investment decisions.
“Earning these distinctions is especially gratifying for us during a year of societal change and uncertainty, and it provides a fitting cap to our 10-year anniversary as an independent firm,” noted PineBridge CEO Greg Ehret.
“This year has served up challenges on so many fronts,” noted Jennifer Motz, PineBridge’s Global Head of Human Resources. “The resilience, commitment, and adaptability of our people has proven that our culture and commitment to a diverse and inclusive workplace are stronger than ever.”

Citywire held its first-ever Gender Diversity Awards ceremony on the 9th December to recognize the progress made by fund management groups on the representation of women and gender diversity practices.
To draw up the shortlist of 35 companies, Citywire used data from its Alpha Female report to look at the percentage of female managers at fund groups and the turnover rates of men and women over the past 10 years. The report previously recognized PineBridge’s Elizabeth Soon’s (Portfolio Manager, Head of Asia ex-Japan Equities), as a top 30 female fund manager; based on her consistently high ratings in the Citywire database over the last five years. The report also listed PineBridge as the fourth-highest manager in terms of female managers at the firm, for asset managers with 20 to 50 managers tracked by Citywire.
