On Wall Street has dropped its AUM minimum requirement for its annual ranking of the top 40 advisors under age 40.

The editors of On Wall Street are asking brokerage firms to nominate their top young producers for recognition. Due to strong interest from potential nominees, On Wall Street has decided to drop a required mimimum of assets under management to highlight the best, young super-producers making their mark on the employee advisory channel.

The results will be published in January.


  • The nominee must be age 39 or younger as of Dec. 31.
  • The nominee must not have been found liable in any litigation related to their work in the past five years.
  • The nominee must be an employee advisor.

Brokerage firms should provide the following:

  • Each nominee’s personal trailing 12-month production.
  • The nominee’s AUM as of Sept. 30. Only individual assets, separate from a team will be accepted. The assets also must be custodied at the firm. 
  • The percentage of the nominee’s production that is fee-based. 

Individuals seeking to be nominated must go through their firm’s corporate communications office. No nominations will be accepted from individual advisors.
