Investing in Our People
Burgundy’s values are brought to life by the daily actions of our people. No matter the position, the right candidate shares our values and understands that everything we do, great or small, is in service of our clients.
Our hiring process is built to assess candidate capabilities and cultural fit. It is not uncommon for candidates to interview with 8-10 members of our team to ensure they can seamlessly integrate with the Burgundy culture. We invest time and energy from the start because we are committed to investing in our people for the long term. A third of our people have been with Burgundy for 10 years or more.
We’re looking for people with strong work ethic and with a level of humility. We often say that if you don’t come in humble, the market will make you humble within the first year anyway, so it’s a good place to start.
– Robert Sankey, CEO
Resources for Young Investors
Our long-term commitment to our people begins in the schools. For students considering a career in finance, Burgundy hosts a number of seminars and events designed to demystify the role of an investment professional and ignite a passion for investing.
