Introducing ThinkAdvisor's New Awards Program: The LUMINARIES

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

What You Need to Know

  • We will recognize achievement in diversity & inclusion, thought leadership, executive leadership and dealmaking/growth.
  • In addition to financial advisors, the program will honor asset managers, broker-dealers, RIAs, fintech firms, retirement product companies and others.
  • Nominations will be accepted through May 17, 2021, at no cost.

This is an exciting time for ThinkAdvisor, which we recently relaunched with a new innovative design and features to enhance the experience for our readers. 

We are now proud to introduce a new and pioneering recognition program — ThinkAdvisor LUMINARIES — which will celebrate top advisors, industry executives, teams, RIAs, broker-dealers, asset/investment/portfolio managers and other firms by showcasing their achievements in four key areas:

  • Diversity & inclusion 
  • Thought leadership 
  • Executive leadership  
  • Dealmaking/growth  

Nominations are being accepted through May 17, and there is no cost to participate.

The program and its related coverage will show the quantitative and qualitative impacts that ThinkAdvisor LUMINARIES are making on the industry — for both today’s and tomorrow’s advisors.

It also will highlight the bold steps the winners are taking to drive the wealth, investment and retirement industry forward in more dynamic and inclusive ways. 

What Makes the LUMINARIES Unique

The program is not meant to emphasize asset levels or rankings — or the latest industry buzz. Rather, our awards and coverage of the winners ​will highlight how top-performing industry participants are producing meaningful results in the areas that matter most to advisors​.

Plus, we’ll tell the full story of their compelling achievements via year-round online and print coverage, including profiles, podcasts, social media campaigns and conversations, as well as slideshows.

Winners will be selected by a distinguished and diverse panel of judges from across the advice industry, as well by our editorial team. 

Our coverage of the LUMINARIES’ winners will begin in September, and then we’ll host the inaugural awards dinner in New York in November.

We invite you to participate in this empowering new recognition program, which promises to shape industry conversations in 2021 and beyond. 

In addition to financial advisors, the following organizations can submit nominations:

  • Asset/portfolio management firms
  • Broker-dealers
  • Clearing/custodial firms
  • Consulting firms
  • Corporate RIAs
  • Fintech firms
  • Partnerships
  • Retirement product companies
  • Retirement planning firms
  • RIA firms/IAR teams
  • TAMP platforms & providers

Again, nominations are due May 17 in the event portal. Please send questions to [email protected].
