How the list of Latin America’s 500 Most Influential Was Compiled

According to Bloomberg Línea’s editorial board, made up of the editors of the media platform residing in several countries of the region, the selection of the 500 personalities was carried out through a meticulous analysis of the most important initiatives carried out by entrepreneurs, executives, investors, researchers, public servants as well as celebrities who are driven beyond their artistic or sports activities.

The editorial team came to a consensus taking into account what is happening in the region, as well as trends in investments, public policies and activities to improve the region’s economic conditions.

As a sign of the times, the list reflects the diversity in Latin America, both of its people and initiatives, and the list is published to celebrate Bloomberg Línea’s first anniversary as a premium destination for business and finance content.
