ER Rising Stars

Saw Business Insider published their rising stars of ER. That got me thinking, how do these analysts climb up the ladder relatively fast? Almost all are in their early 30s.

Were they star associates? Were they lucky a senior analyst was leaving or their firm was opening a new analyst spot? I'm sure its a combination of everything, but would love to hear if anyone got specifics.

I have seen analysts in their early 20s. I interviewed for a research associate role with a NYC-based analyst who was only 24! (I'm 23). Not too sure about the specifics about how one becomes a rising star, but I imagine it has to do allot with seniors. In the industry I work in the analysts at Morgan Stanley and JPM are nobodies who just got their own coverage, whereas the analysts from boutique firms are II ranked. If you are a star and the spot opens when your senior leaves you can leave your mark
