Percent Named a ‘Best Place to Work’ in Financial Technology

Fintech Transforming Private Markets With Innovative Offerings for All Market Participants Named to Arizent and Best Companies Group’s Annual List of Top Employers in the Space; Rankings Based on Compiled Survey Analysis From Judges as Well as Employees

New York, NY—June 3, 2022— Percent, the platform powering the future of private markets, has been named one of the 2022 Best Places to Work in Financial Technology. Percent was ranked No. 16 on the list of fifty companies being recognized for creating an open and welcoming workplace within Fintech. 

This annual survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the financial technology industry. Among many employee-focused initiatives, Percent was recognized for its program that pays for chartered financial analyst (CFA) exam and license fees for interested employees. Percent also received recognition for its health care policies, as the company pays 100% of medical insurance for employees and dependents. Several of the plans also have no deductible, meaning employees have minimal out-of-pocket expenses. 

“At Percent, our talent is our most valuable asset and culture is a top priority,” said Nelson Chu, Founder and CEO of Percent. “Being named to Arizent’s list of Best Places to Work in Financial Technology in 2022 is more proof that we are walking the walk when it comes to creating an engaged and rewarding work environment for our people. We are extremely proud of this accomplishment and honored to be among other innovators and leaders in our space.”

The awards program was created in 2017 and is a project of Arizent and Best Companies Group. The 2022 list included fifty companies and was published by Arizent brands American Banker, National Mortgage News, PaymentsSource, Financial Planning and Digital Insurance.

“The fintech community continues to grow and provide job opportunities for data scientists, developers, managers and creative thinkers,” said Penny Crosman, executive editor, technology at American Banker. “Best Places to Work in Financial Technology offers a look at fintechs that lead the pack in areas like human resources policies, perks and culture, which can help people understand which companies might be a fit for them.”

To be considered for participation, companies must provide technology products, services or solutions that enable the delivery of financial services. Companies must also have been in business for at least one full year and employ at least 15 people in the U.S. 

Companies from across the United States entered a two-part survey process to determine Arizent’s Best Places to Work in Financial Technology. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data and determined the final ranking.
