Hedge fund managers are throwing their weight around in Bloomberg Markets' latest list of the 50 most influential people in finance.

Seven hedge fund honchoes make the magazine's list, which saw a turnover of two-thirds in this volatile year. The weightiest hedgies, according to the list, are AQR Capital Management's Clifford Asness, Tiger Global Management's Chase Coleman, Omega Advisors' Leon Cooperman, Bridgewater Associates' Ray Dalio, JPMorgan Asset Management CEO Mary Erdoes, DoubleLine Capital's Jeffrey Gundlach and BlueCrest Capital Management's Michael Platt.

In addition to hedge fund managers proper, the list is littered with those active in or having an impact on the industry, including Warren Buffett, BlackRock CEO Larry Fink and Abu Dhabi Investment Authority chief Hamed bin Zayed al Nahyan. Regulators with influence include U.S. prosecutor Preet Bharara, the Federal Reserve's Ben Bernanke and Janet Yellen, U.K. Financial Services Authority Chairman Adair Turner, U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and European Central Bank President Mario Draghi.
