The most powerful person on Wall Street is an elusive character.
Is it Blankfein? Doubtful.
Is it the M&A all-star who initiated the recent wave of hedge fund mergers? The wealth manager who’s brought in 15 new clients this year? Now that’s more like it.
Earlier this fall, we asked Bill Ackman – who’s the most powerful person on Wall Street right now?
He didn’t have an answer.
“I don’t think there are any most powerful people left,” he said. “They are in hiding.”
But we think they’re out there. And if anyone’s left, and if anyone knows who they are, it’s you guys.
