Bloomberg Markets 50 Most Influential
Bloomberg favors recent accomplishments over lifetime achievements. Half the people here have never appeared on the list before. Tech executives and entrepreneurs and the venture capitalists who fund them are ascendant of late, and the list reflects that. China, for better or worse, is vital to global markets, and Bloomberg has a bigger Asia cohort than ever.
To build the list each year, Bloomberg starts with a much larger universe of candidates, compiled with the help of Bloomberg News reporters and editors around the world. They also rely on the rankings, profiles, and cover stories they publish throughout the year in Bloomberg Markets. Then the magazine’s editors winnow it down, making the hard calls about who’s in and who’s out.
This year, for the first time, Bloomberg enlisted the help of nine industry experts, who convened as the advisory board for their companion conference, the Bloomberg Markets Most Influential Summit.
