Young Guns: Top 50 Plan Advisors Under 40

By NAPA Net Staff • 11/23/2014 • 0 Comments
Where is the next generation of plan advisors coming from?

To answer that question, NAPA set out to find the top young advisors — the profession’s “Young Guns.” The result of that effort was our list of the “Top Plan Advisors Under 40,” published in our Summer 2014 issue and posted online here. (To view the story from NAPA Net the Magazine, click here.)

In 2015, we’re doing it all over again. This year's selection process (see below) began in March. Look for more information about the process here and in the NAPA Net Daily

Selection Process

One of the things that sets the "Young Guns" list apart from other published lists is that it is based on a three-part selection process that taps the knowledge of NAPA’s nearly 10,000 members: 

  1. Firm Partner Nominations: The process starts with NAPA’s broker dealer and RIA Firm Partners submitting their nominations. Nominations for the 2015 list have been submitted and loaded into the voting web page
  2. Voting and Open Nominations: Next, NAPA members and NAPA Net Daily subscribers vote for their favorites onlineor submit additional nominees to be added to the voting portal. For 2015, voting began March 20, and ends at midnight ET, April 10. To cast your vote, click hereNote that advisors are not allowed to vote for themselves — and no one who works at their firm is allowed to vote for them, either.
  3. Selection: The final vote tallies will be reviewed by a NAPA blue ribbon committee, which will select the 2015 top advisors under 40 — the Young Guns. 

Celebrating the 2015 Young Guns

In July, our 2015 list will be unveiled in the Summer issue of NAPA Net the Magazine and here on NAPA Net.
