Our March 31 deadline to recognize the brightest young minds in the industry is fast approaching. CIO is accepting recommendations for our annual Forty Under Forty list. In previous years, we’ve gathered more than 300 nominations, with the forty individuals who make the cut each year representing the industry’s brightest young talent.
We want to know who you think should make this year’s list. Email your nominations here before Feb. 20 to be considered.
A few rules:
- They have to be asset owners (not managers, or outsourced-CIOs, or multi-family offices)
- They have to be under 40 as of April 30, 2017.
- They need to be a new potential winner and cannot have been on the list before. Check the 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, and 2012 editions of the list to see who has already appeared on the Forty Under Forty (and is thus ineligible in 2017).
Give us as much information as you can, including nominees’ contact details and what makes them impressive. We’d love to know why you think they’d make great candidates, and any of their worthy accomplishments thus far in their careers.
Let’s make this inspirational. We’re seeking to shine a spotlight on the rising stars among the next generation and those worth watching. Let’s face it, younger people with ambition, idealism, insight and ability give us good feelings about the future.
In the past, we spotlighted rising all stars such as Jagdeep Bachher, who became the CIO of the University of California Board of Regents within a few short years, and Mark Baumgartner, who went on to take the helm as CIO of Institute for Advanced Study.
