KEYS TO RETENTION
ULTIMATE GOAL TO BE A CIO?
HOW OFTEN in our lives do we get a brief
look at the newest leaders to enter the scene?
The next few pages are filled with the best,
brightest and most inspiring talent.
To keep it fair, we asked these rising
stars the same series of questions, and
received wonderfully varied answers. As
part of the process, we also included an
anonymous survey. We wanted to know
if this new class of 40 Under 40s* were
striving to become CIOs. Most were, but
quite a few are undecided. A significant
percentage were also unsure on what type
of fund they’d like to work for in the future.
Since retention is always a large concern
when true talent begins to shine, now that
we’ve spotlighted them, we also wanted to
know what would keep these up-and-coming
CIOs at their current places of employment. Surprisingly, intellectual stimulation
topped the list, followed, predictably, by
compensation. A solid tie for third place
showed a strong desire for culture, as well
as a workplace that encourages independent
thinking. —Christine Giordano
