For this year’s “sexiest” Wall Streeters list we decided to go in a bit of a different direction.
Instead of the typical Jamie Dimon, Dan Loeb and Bill Ackman lineup, we scoured Wall Street new names. Of course, we still have a few household names on the list, too.
For the list, Stephanie Ruhle, the anchor of Bloomberg TV’s “Market Makers”, helped come up with some names of the sexiest men in finance as our guest judge.
