Bloomberg Markets just put together a list of the most influential figures in finance.
It runs the gamut from regulators to bankers to academics, but there are a handful of hedge fund managers on the list, too.
According to Bloomberg Markets Magazine, they are the most influential private equity and hedge fund managers in the world.
(Note: Warren Buffett and David Rubenstein, also money managers, made the list too, but they were recognised as “corporate innovators,” not money managers, like these men were.)
