The Industry Awards program is the first of its kind to recognize outstanding achievement among vendors and suppliers serving the financial advisory community. It is a prestigious award that recognizes outstanding initiatives, innovation and leadership for firms in the wealth management industry. It offers award winners and sponsors a superior public relations opportunity, validates marketing messages, and makes a unique competitive leadership statement.

A panel of judges made up of top names in the industry determine the 2016 award winners in more than 60 individual categories. Each year the award winners are recognized at a black tie event in New York City. A portion of the proceeds from the awards event are donated to the Foundation for Financial Planning, an organization devoted to providing pro bono financial planning to the underserved—primarily by providing grants to connect those in need with those willing to provide financial planning.


National Real Estate Investor (NREI) and Information Management Network (IMN) have teamed up to present the NREI/IMN Commercial Real Estate Awards. The awards program is designed to recognize forward-thinking organizations that exemplify the highest degree of business excellence in the commercial real estate industry.

A panel of judges made up of seasoned commercial real estate professionals select the finalists in nearly two-dozen categories. The winners are announced at a special awards dinner held in conjunction with IMN’s Annual U.S. Real Estate Opportunity & Private Funds Investing Forum.

In an increasingly complex marketplace, there’s a tremendous incentive for advisors to diversify their client base—and their firms. Having a team with diverse viewpoints—age, race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation—is quickly becoming a business imperative.

This unique Breakfast Event Series educates advisors on ways they can move their practices forward by expanding into diverse markets and hiring and retaining a more inclusive workforce—including women, millennials, minorities, LGBT and ethnic advisors.

Sponsors have the opportunity to position themselves as a thought leader, promote their firm as a leading authority on diversity issues, participate in superior networking and recruitment events, and open the door to broader marketing opportunities (like videos, online channels and webinars).
