Chinese President Xi Jinping topped the second place amongst 50 people in the fifth annual Market Most Influential Ranking that was recently announced by Bloomberg Business.

Xi was second after Federal Reserve Chairwoman of the United States Janet Yellen, the first female head of the Federal Reserve. Apple’s CEO Tim Cook ranked the third, with Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett came the fifth and Barack Obama the sixth.

That Yellen topped the list definitely underscores the importance of her position as well as the decisions she made in nine years. Former chairman of the Federal Reserve Bernanke once commented that she has more experience than any of the former Fed Chairmen.

With Xi as the second financially most influential person in the world, Bloomberg Markets said that the whole world’s eyes are now upon the Chinese leader’s ability, wanting to see how he leads the second largest economy in the globe.

And the number of Chinese people got on the list this year marks a record high. Among them were Fan Bao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at China Renaissance (22th); Wang Qishan, Wang Qishan, the head of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (33rd); and Wang Jianlin, Chairman of Wanda Group (37th). These people signify China’s growing influence towards the global markets.
