Sharp minds. Engaging personalities. We're searching for the advice industry's up-and-comers — and we need your help

InvestmentNews is beginning its search for the sharpest minds and most engaging personalities among the advice industry's up-and-comers.

We're counting on you to help us find them. If you know a superstar adviser who will be 39 or younger on June 18 — someone who really stands out in the crowd and has added value to your firm or the industry in general — tell us about him or her in 200 words or less at InvestmentNews.com/nominate40.

The deadline is March 31.

We're also accepting nominations for standouts who aren't financial advisers, provided the majority of their work is with, and for, the financial advisory industry.

So do us a favor and nominate that young academician, back-office brainiac or technology consultant who has helped you help your clients and exemplifies the industry's finest talent.

This will be the fifth year we have done 40 Under 40. In that short time, it's become one of our marquee projects. Indeed, our 40s will be featured not only in the June 18 print edition of InvestmentNews, but also on our website. In fact, our 40 Under 40 microsite is one of the most visited parts of our site.

The project is also one of our most successful on social media. Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn drive a significant amount of traffic to this project.

So, I urge you to take 10 or 15 minutes out of your day sometime in the coming weeks to nominate someone who renews your optimism about the future of advice.

Again, the deadline for nominations is March 31.
