As Wall Street navigates a health pandemic that’s changed the way we work and dramatically changed the economic landscape, we take a look at the players rising up despite the challenges and grasping opportunities as they see them.
From launching game-changing groups within global financial institutions, to having a hand in restructuring entertainment giants like AMC, these 25 stood out as the leaders for tomorrow.
In addition to being at the top of their class, these finalists are also trailblazing in new areas like data science and machine learning, executing on sustainability goals, and paving the way for a more diverse and equitable workforce by speaking out and taking part in recruiting efforts.
Selecting the final list wasn’t easy. We received hundreds of nominations from bosses, colleagues, recruiters, and others working in the finance industry. We asked that nominees be 35 or under, based in the US, and stand out from their peers. Editors made the final decisions.
We’ve included people with a variety of roles and experiences from companies including Bridgewater Associates, BlackRock, Goldman Sachs, Fidelity, and the Carlyle Group.
We also asked this year’s rising stars of Wall Street to give us their best advice for people just starting out.
