Last week, the folks at Forbes unveiled
their 2021 lists of "America's Best Large Employers"
and "America's Best Mid-Size Employers"
. The first list includes at least eleven fund firms, while the second includes at least three. (The first list also includes several retirement plan recordkeepers, as highlighted by 401kWire
, our sister publication. Some of those recordkeepers should be familiar as they're also mutual fund firms.)
Edward Jones, parent of Bridge Builder
, ranks 132nd
on the publication's best large employers list, ahead of the other large firms in the mutual fund business. Other fund firms on the list include: JPMorgan Chase
; Charles Schwab
; Ameriprise, parent of Columbia Threadneedle
; Goldman Sachs
; Raymond James, parent of Carillon Tower Advisers
; Morgan Stanley
; Prudential, parent of PGIM
; and Nationwide
As for mid-size employers, the list includes: Baird
; and Thrivent
Both lists (500 companies each) draw on a Statista
survey of 50,000 Americans who work with companies with at least 1,000 employees each.
Editor's Note: A prior version of this story mistakenly left out one of the recordkeepers recognized by Forbes.
