I’m a staff writer covering all things Wall Street and Investing. I have a love hate relationship with the world of finance. I am fascinated by the industry’s power and influence around the globe, and the ingenuity of the people it employs. Not so much a fan of the lack of accountability when the...
As our nation’s pension tanker veers toward an iceberg, all hands had better be on deck. That includes the trustees overseeing investment decisions for $3.5 trillion in public pension assets. As a start, trustees can stop pretending they know how to choose money managers. For this reason, the board that oversees the Illinois State Board of Investment (ISBI) pension fund has moved to indexing about 70% of its $21 billion in assets.
America's Top Next-Generation Wealth Managers is our first ever list featuring 500 resilient millennials. Why resilient? Most of the names on this list entered the workforce amid the Great Recession. They started their careers at the peak of the financial crisis— in finance no less—when markets were crumbling, financial firms struggled to stay alive and the economy was on the brink of collapse. Today they represent the top-performing young advisors at their firms, and the future of the industry.
Meghan Railey started her career in wealth management at the worst time. She joined the UBS training program for financial advisors in July 2008 just before the peak of the financial crisis. Months later she would watch as the firm fired nearly all trainees as training programs were dismantled across the industry during the crisis. “I had friends go into the manager’s office and walk out with a plane ticket home,” Railey recalls. When it was her turn to see the manager she got some surprising news.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
