While this year marks the 20th anniversary of the Most Powerful Women in Banking, a separate finance list didn’t appear until 2008. At the time, the list was called “The Top 24 Nonbank Women in Finance.”
At the top of the list that year was Nicole Arnaboldi, vice chair of alternative investments at Credit Suisse. Candace Browning, a longtime finance honoree who was then senior vice president and president of global research at Merrill Lynch, was ranked No. 12.
This year, we opened up the list to include women who run stock exchanges. Adena Friedman, president and CEO of Nasdaq, and Lynn Martin, president of New York Stock Exchange, are making their debut on the list.
Coming back onto the list in a new position is Thasunda Brown Duckett, who took over the top job at financial services firm TIAA in 2021. Duckett is now only one of two Black women CEOs currently running a Fortune 500 company.
