GuideStone Capital Management, LLC® was recognized today by Pensions & Investments as one of the 2020 Best Places to Work in Money Management. This is the second consecutive year GuideStone Capital Management has been honored with this award.
“We are excited to once again be recognized as a premiere employer among the nation’s top money management firms,” said David Spika, who provides daily leadership to GuideStone Capital Management and serves as chief strategic investment officer of GuideStone®. “As Christians, we think it matters where we invest the resources God has given to us — and this includes the investment we make in our employees. We strive to maintain a collaborative and collegial culture that is performance-oriented, merit-based and at all times focused on enhancing the financial wellbeing of our investors. Our blend of ministry and business is truly unique in the asset management industry, and it is validating to know that this approach continues to resonate with our employees.”
GuideStone® president Dr. O.S. Hawkins echoed Spika’s comments.
“Since our founding more than 100 years ago, GuideStone has existed to ‘serve those who serve the Lord with the integrity of our hearts and the skillfulness of our hands,’” Hawkins said. “As we have grown into a nationally recognized financial services organization, our ministry focus has remained the same. This has allowed us to attract and retain highly talented individuals who are driven by a Kingdom mindset. This repeat award is more than just another trophy to be placed on a shelf — it is a direct reflection of the hearts of our employees and their ongoing dedication to our investors and participants. While this recognition was specific to the firm’s Investments line of business, we believe it is representative of the broader GuideStone organization.”
