San Diego—March 1, 2021—Reilly Financial Advisors has been recognized as a 2021 Best Places to Work for Financial Advisers as announced by InvestmentNews today.
Reilly Financial Advisors was chosen as one of this year’s top 75 based on employer and employee surveys delving into everything from company culture, benefits, career paths and more.
“It is such an honor for RFA to be named a top place to work for financial advisors by InvestmentNews,” said President Frank Reilly of Reilly Financial Advisors. “This ranking is a testament to the firm culture my executive team and I have worked hard to cultivate over the last twenty-plus years. Because we value each member of the RFA team like family, we aim to reduce stress and provide a proper work-life balance through 39-hour work weeks, 100% paid medical premiums for all employees and their families, paid time off for volunteering, biennial Disneyland passes after three years of employment, and various other perks. When new advisors join the RFA team, it’s not uncommon for them to experience a brief culture shock—but in the best kind of way.”
InvestmentNews partnered with Best Companies Group, an independent research firm specializing in identifying great places to work, to compile the survey and recognition program.
