Meet Wall Street's Hottest Power Couples

Ivanka Trump Jared Kushner

Sure, Wall Streeters spend more time in their offices than anywhere else.

And, more often than not, they inter-date on the Street.

In honour of Valentine’s Day, we’ve found the financial industry’s biggest power couples.

From hedge funders to a New York City mayor, these twosomes run the gamut of successful financiers.
