We are a global, diversified, multi-boutique asset management company operating our business through our seven Affiliates. Our business model combines the investment talent, entrepreneurialism, focus, and creativity of leading asset management boutiques with the resources and capabilities of a larger firm. We have broad and deep experience in working with boutique asset managers, and we leverage the expertise and resources within our organization to engage actively with our Affiliates and provide them with capabilities generally unavailable to specialist asset management firms. With this, BrightSphere employees benefit from a unique blend of a small company feel and international operation, working collaboratively to grow our business on a global basis.
The foundation for a high performing organization that supports successful careers for talented individuals is a strong and healthy culture. We are committed to getting feedback from our employees, and on an annual basis all employees participate in a thorough survey that helps us gauge our current culture and what we collectively think we need in our desired culture to function at our best as an organization. This is paramount to BrightSphere's success as every individual employee's feedback is valuable and integral to maintaining a positive culture.
