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.
