Established in 2013 by the Smarten Up Institute, in collaboration with the Investment Industry Association of Canada, the IIAC Top Under 40 Award is designed to celebrate an individual whose drive, dedication, and personal and professional qualities render him or her capable of having a positive influence on the investment industry early in his/her professional life.
One recipient will be awarded the opportunity to work alongside one of the top industry leaders for a one week period in association with the Smarten Up Institute’s Mentor Program®. A real benefit is the rare opportunity for a young ‘up and comer’ to see first-hand the challenges and rewards that face the President or Chairman of an investment firm, or the CFO or CIO of a major financial institution or industry vendor firm.
In addition, the recipient will also be given a course of their choosing with the Smarten Up Institute in Toronto, or a course in association with Smarten Up Institute at a partner University or College.
This award has a total value of over $5,000.
Nomination forms must be submitted no later than 5:00 ET Sunday, May 31, 2015.
