Chief Investment Officer is pleased to present its 10th annual list of the world’s most influential investment consultants and advisers.

When choosing a consultant or adviser, it’s important to separate the wheat from the chaff and find those who are consistently at the top of their game.

At CIO, our goal, as always, is to present a list of top performers, or the top knowledge brokers in the industry. Each year, we ask a varied group of respected chief investment officers and allocators which consultants and advisers have “done right by them” for the current markets.

With COVID-19 at play, the past 12 months of market activity have been unusual. We thought, for this year’s list, CIOs might find it useful to have the names of those they could trust to be rock-solid through a storm. So we sought the names that CIOs would recommend to their peers for their reliably on-target suggestions.

Many people on this list are veterans of the industry, and there are very few newcomers. All were recommended by respected CIOs.

Here are their choices of Knowledge Brokers for 2021.
