Submit your 40 Under 40 Nominations

CIO is seeking the brightest talent under 40 for annual competition.

Each year, we take nominations of people who inspire us most for our 40-under-40 competition, which shines a light on the best and the brightest rising stars in the industry. We’re looking for individuals who may someday lead our future’s most important asset-owning organizations.

We’ve gotten quite a few great nominations this year (thank you for your submissions) and our nomination period is still open.

In previous years, we’ve gathered more than 300 nominations, with the 40 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.

A few rules:

1) Nominees must be asset owners (not managers, or outsourced-CIOs, or multi-family offices)

2) They must be under 40 as of April 30, 2017.

3) Nominees cannot have been on the list previously. Check the 2016201520142013, 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. 

So email me your nominations or use our online submission form. You will remain anonymous to all but me and my editorial team.
