Next-Gen CEOs Take the Wheel

By: The Ensemble Practice

We were excited to see The G2 Leadership Institute and several of our G2 alumni featured in Charles Paikert's recent Barron's article focusing on the financial advisory industry's next-gen CEOs. Developing young leaders, empowering them to steer the ship and then, most importantly, letting go and putting the wheel in the hands of this next generation is the key to meeting the succession challenges facing G1 founders. Still, we estimate that fewer than 10 percent of RIAs have CEOs in their 30s or early 40s.
