Awards & Recognition

40 Under 40

The InvestmentNews 40 Under 40 program recognizes and celebrates up-and-comers in the financial advice industry. Each year, our editorial team reviews hundreds of nominations to create a list of 40 outstanding financial advisers, or industry professionals supporting advisers, who are 39 or younger. Honorees are judged on their accomplishments, contribution to the industry, leadership and promise. Some of the industry’s best and brightest started out on one of our 40 Under 40 lists. If you are, or know, someone who deserves national recognition, fill out a nomination form.
