Who We Are

An Asset-Management Firm with Unique Capabilities

What makes AllianceBernstein special? Although high-quality research is at our core, we don’t stop there. We apply our intense research to deepening our understanding of today’s constantly changing financial environment. Our intellectual capital fosters problem solving, which in turn creates new ideas and innovative products.

We also operate on a global scale, which is critical today because of the interdependence of financial markets. Our growth is international and diversified.

Finally, we are an extraordinarily client-focused organization. Our reach with institutional and retail clients is worldwide, and our highly respected private client business shows that we have understood how to translate research into results for over 40 years. We also have a talented and top-rated sell-side franchise, which is unprecedented in a stand-alone asset-management organization. All this puts us in a unique position to provide world-class offerings to our clients across the full spectrum of asset management and to foster their financial success.

Confidence —Because we take personal responsibility for our actions and are not afraid to speak openly and frankly with our colleagues and clients, we are confident in our ideas and our actions for the firm.

We also celebrate intellectual curiosity, creativity, inventiveness and service. All of these traits drive us to continue to deliver some of the most trusted research and smartest advice in our industry—bolstering our tradition of delivering remarkable long-term financial performance for our clients.

We Are Relentlessly Ingenious

Relentlessness gives us physicality and continuously moves us forward. We want to win for our clients, and we are both tenacious and resolute as we pursue this goal. We are also courageous in championing our ideas.

We balance our relentlessness with ingenuity, which we consider an intellectual trait. We are endlessly curious, always seeking to transform stale ideas and received wisdom into fresh insights and bold new ways to help our clients succeed. Using our firm’s impeccable research as a base, our ingenuity allows us to be open to new possibilities and nimble in making them a reality.

Diversity & Inclusion

Our Commitment to Diversity

We hire the best and brightest people, without restriction, and this creates a unique environment of energy, teamwork and trust. Individuals are valued not only for their unique talents but also for their ability to work productively with others. To support each other’s personal and professional development and well-being, we have created Employee Resource Groups where employees can meet and feel comfortable openly discussing common interests and shared experiences.

Encouraging Personal Development and Camaraderie

Although we are a global organization with thousands of employees, we recognize that everyone is an individual with unique needs, ideas and interests. Through our Employee Resource Groups, which are organized and run locally, we support individuals who want to share knowledge and expertise and encourage their colleagues’ personal and professional development. These groups have been well received and have made our employees’ personal and professional lives richer.
