Schwab Institutional announced that it has begun accepting nominations for its second annual Schwab Impact Awards, which recognize excellence among SEC-registered RIA firms in visionary leadership (the Charles R. Schwab Impact Award), operations, and technology innovation. New this year–in Schwab Institutional’s 20th year of operations–is a Pacesetter Award that recognizes relative newcomers to the field, those firms with 10 years or less in the business that have nevertheless achieved significant growth. As was the case last year, Moss Adams LLP will score all entries and select the finalists, and a panel of judges from the industry will pick the winners.
The nomination window is open from April 2 through June 1 at impactawards.schwab.com, where further information on the nomination and judging process is available. The winning firms will be announced at the annual Schwab Impact conference, which will be held this year from October 28-31 in Las Vegas.
