December 14, 2021

BOSTON, DECEMBER 14, 2021 — Income Research + Management (IR+M), the U.S. fixed income manager with $96 billion in AUM, today is named by Pensions & Investments as one of the Best Places to Work in Money Management. This is the sixth year that IR+M was recognized among companies with 100 – 499 employees.

Presented by Pensions & Investments, the global news source of money management, the 10th-annual survey and recognition program is dedicated to identifying and recognizing the best employers in the money management industry.

“We are ecstatic to again be named one of Pensions & Investments’ Best Places to Work,” said Bill O’Malley, CEO and Co-CIO. “Our culture is the heartbeat of our firm, and we are so proud that we continue to thrive in this hybrid work environment. We want to be a firm that our colleagues are excited to be a part of – excited to call theirs. Our effort to become ever better hinges on our growing DEI-related awareness and action. A more diverse IR+M will be a stronger IR+M for our clients, community, and colleagues.”

“Now in its 10th year, P&I’s Best Places to Work in Money Management spotlights the unique ways that employers build healthy and thriving work cultures,” said Executive Editor Julie Tatge. “This year was no different. The 100 firms profiled in our Dec. 13 issue grappled with myriad challenges posed by the pandemic and met them, helping ensure that their employees felt supported and able to do their best work.”

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.
