Forbes Table

How we chose the 500

Bloomberg Línea’s editorial team looked at 18 countries in the region and chose to highlight business people, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, athletes, and government officials. We chose these countries and the number of people on the list based on the size of their populations and economy.

Among the criteria used by Bloomberg Linea reporters and editors for this list are concepts such as job creation, initiatives to address the pandemic, successful innovative projects, and the capability to support philanthropic endeavors and promote public policies for recovery.

The list will be a living entity, which might change according to the characters’ actions and the arrival of new players in the great Latin American arena.
