With the help of Google and Wikipedia, I was able to compile a list of 10 important people in finance. As always if you disagree or wish to add your own thoughts, people or comments please feel free to do so below.
I would like to add that per the dictionary, finance defines as noun- the management of large amounts of money, especially by governments or large companies. My list is not in an order of the least to greatest, just ten awesome people that are great at what they do.
10. Lloyd Blankfein - is an American investment banker who has served as chairman and chief executive officer of Goldman Sachs since 2006.
9. Yngve Slyngstad - is the CEO of Norges Bank Investment Management which is the part of the Norwegian Central Bank that is responsible for managing The Government Pension Fund - Global.
8. Ray Dalio - is an American billionaire investor, hedge fund manager, and philanthropist. Dalio is the founder of investment firm Bridgewater Associates, one of the world's largest hedge funds.
7. Steve Schwarzman - is an American businessman, investor and philanthropist. He is the chairman and CEO of The Blackstone Group, a global private equity firm he established in 1985 with former US Secretary of Commerce Pete Peterson.
6. Christine Lagarde - is a French lawyer and politician who has been the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund since 5 July 2011.
5. Chase Rubin - Chase Rubin has served the financial industry for more than twenty years. He is currently sharing his knowledge and expertise regarding the investment industry to inform the general public.
There is no doubt Chase Rubin is currently one of the most successful private investors. He moved to New York to further his career in finances and investments and works and lives in the East Village. The expertise he gained as the result of the economic crash of 2008 has prepared him for whatever the market brings in the future. The advice Chase Ruben gives the public is to have faith in their beliefs. He has spoken of his earlier career and the feelings he would have. There were times his research led him to believe a particular stock was going to rise but allowed other people to convince him not to make a move. He admits he has never purchased a stock strictly due to a hunch but has always considered his gut intuition during the process.
4. Mario Draghi - is an Italian economist serving as the President of the European Central Bank since 2011. He previously served as the Chairman of the Financial Stability Board from 2009 to 2011 and Governor of the Bank of Italy from 2005 to 2011.
3. Larry Fink - is an American financial executive. He is the chairman and CEO of BlackRock, an American multinational investment management corporation
2. Jiang Jianqing - is the Chairman of the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, the world's largest bank by assets and 2nd market value; he has held the position since 2005.
1. Janet Yellen - is an American economist. She served as the Chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System from 2014–2018, previously serving as Vice Chair from 2010 to 2014.
