How we selected the Latin America’s 500
Bloomberg Línea's editorial team researched in more than 20 countries in the region to highlight business leaders, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, athletes, activists, public officials and scientists.
The editors took into account factors such as job creation, investments and innovations that helped spur economic activity.
The 2022 list includes a growing percentage of women who have led initiatives to advance their countries' economies in key indices.
This year we include some markets that are new to the list, but whose economic activity is part of the region's economic development. Thus, we feature personalities from Cuba, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, and a selection of Hispanic executives in the US who lead companies with a presence in the Americas.
