We have one mission: to turn our unconventional wisdom into value for investors through high-conviction active management. We have never wavered in our belief that taking a global investment perspective, having a long-term focus, achieving reward with measured risk and investing with a trusted, tenured team is the right way to create value for our clients.

Founded nearly 60 years ago, OppenheimerFunds is one of the largest and most reputable asset management firms in the country. Our high-conviction culture and commitment to unconventional thinking have allowed the firm to develop innovative strategies that anticipate and address the changing needs of investors, and provide us with a winning formula for delivering strong, consistent investment performance.

We employ a collaborative approach with focused, independent teams of experienced investment professionals. This enables a greater flow of intelligence across the organization, while empowering portfolio managers to hone their investing ideas. We manage risk through independent oversight that is fully embedded in our investment process.

Our strategy and appetite for growth and innovation continue as we develop and offer products we believe are right for our investors and their long-term interests.

At the very foundation of everything we do as a company, lay our Corporate Values. These form the foundation of how we conduct business and define the behaviors, attitudes, and philosophies that guide our company. These are: Excellence, Integrity, Collaboration and Passion.

 

OppenheimerFunds has been described as a Wall Street oasis; somewhere you can experience the excitement of the markets in real time, yet still strike a balance between your personal and professional lives.

We offer competitive opportunities that allow you to build a rewarding career with lifetime potential, and invest in your continual career development. We encourage our employees to apply entrepreneurial thinking and our flat structure means senior leadership is easily accessible. We strive to ensure our employees have a platform to be heard and offer high visibility into the Company’s strategic goals and growth plans, communicating the importance of each individual to achieving our collective goals.

While the big things such as opportunity and career development are important, we recognize the small things matter, too. That’s why we’re currently renovating our New York office to be more open, more comfortable and more collaborative, adding a roof terrace, modern, well-equipped kitchens, and couch areas. We provide free fresh fruit and beverages and each department regularly hosts team outings and events.

At OppenheimerFunds, we know that the health of our business depends on the health and welfare of our workforce and their families. But more than that, we’re a company that cares about connecting our employees with the benefits, services and programs they need to stay physically, emotionally and financially well and protected. Our comprehensive benefits offerings were designed to ensure we offer the latest benefits to eligible employees, and our comprehensive prescription drug program gives employees access to both name-brand and generic drugs and helps keep costs down.

 In addition to health care, our company-wide wellness program allows employees to earn wellness incentives. The wellness program encourages employees to take care of themselves – for all the things they want to do and for all the people who matter most to them.

We also offer a number of retirement, flexible spending and ancillary offerings.
