Class of 2021 NextGens

This illustrious group of 25 rising stars is fostering an innovative brio in the world of institutional asset allocation.


They are the rising stars in the world of allocators, the folks who someday stand to become chief investment officers themselves. They possess a virtuous mixture of financial knowledge, personal skills, and forward thinking. They also have a knack for seeing around corners.

Each year, we at CIO ask for nominations for the brightest up-and-comers on the allocator scene. And, for the past 10 years that we’ve been doing this, we get an impressive list of young leaders who embody the innovative spirit that animates the best of institutional investing.

CIO’s NextGen 2021 series gives you a glimpse inside the thinking of these fine people. We always ask their CIOs to assess them, and have each nominee answer a set of questions that reveals their strategies and personalities, and what financial luminaries (other than those they’ve worked with) they would like to meet.

This year, as the world still grapples with the pandemic and is gradually opening up economically, has posed special challenges for investing. In light of the unknown future, our NextGens share their thoughts on the turbulent investment landscape, delivering wise insights on how to navigate it.

You can reach these rising leaders, and share your thoughts on social media, using the hashtag #2021NextGenCIO.
