Passion for Work, Intellectual Curiosity, Collaboration, and Respect for All
These core values are the foundation of our firm; they unite our team and fuel our mission to deliver the most creative, unbiased, and responsible solutions in the financial advisory industry.
At Chartwell, we have a passion for our professional life and all it offers. We seek to think creatively and learn deeply. We believe skillful, original thinking by a diverse team with complementary skills is the most effective way to produce superior results for our clients and our firm. We believe a respectful, supportive environment where people can learn, grow, and do the best work of their lives together is crucial.
To develop such an environment, we believe it is important to provide opportunities for our employees to support their personal passions, to give back to our local communities…and to have fun! Over the years, our employees have started various committees inspired by our core values. The committees enable us to expand our collaborative efforts beyond client work, with the goal of providing a richer experience for Chartwell employees and ideally making the world a little better place to live.
Our charitable mission is to help make the world a better place to live
Chartwell believes serving others extends beyond our professional lives. We support organizations that positively impact young people in the underserved communities around us and enrich the lives of our neighbors.
Justice, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion (JEDI)
Chartwell is committed to building an inclusive and equitable culture
We encourage, support, and celebrate diverse voices. By creating an environment in which our team members can bring their whole selves to work, Chartwell empowers everyone to generate better ideas to support our clients, business, and evolving society.
We foster a team environment dedicated to holistic wellbeing
Through the support of healthy lifestyle choices, our Chartwellness committee provides employees with health education, group activities, and competitions that enable them to achieve their best possible self.
Women in Leadership Development (WILD)
Chartwell develops and rewards female leaders and professionals
Our WILD group creates opportunities for candid conversations about how to support and build each other up as we progress through our careers. Through discussions and activities, we provide mentoring opportunities, leadership development, and networking focused on topics of importance to women.
“Chartwell provides an environment that supports continued professional development as well as other passions. I’ve personally benefited from the Women In Leadership Development group and also recently took paid time off for a mission trip to serve children in Kenya (with one of our long-term clients nonetheless). I feel blessed to work for an organization that genuinely cares and strives to do right by its people, clients, and surrounding communities!”
“Chartwell’s recent conversations about social matters challenged us to think of DEI issues in our daily work and lives. This hit home when thinking about the end beneficiaries of our work with employee-owned businesses: not the C-suite, but the frontline workers on manufacturing floors or construction sites, akin to those who shaped my upbringing and community. Growing up in a small Minnesota town, the primary form of diversity I encountered was socioeconomic, and this further strengthens my connection to Chartwell's mission. It means a lot to me to lift up the diverse workers of our clients, thereby contributing to a more equitable and inclusive world.”
