Mo Ibrahim named as one of 50 most influential by Bloomberg

Bloomberg, the financial software, data, and media company, have released their annual list of the 50 most influential people, with Mo Ibrahim appearing at number 48.

Influence plays out in many ways. Our list this year includes the CEO who beat back an activist investor’s power grab, the African billionaire using his fortune to fight corruption, the economist who thinks economic models often don’t match reality, the money manager who has been publishing market analysis since he was 18, and the chairman of the world’s largest bank by assets

The list cites the Ibrahim Index of African Governance as “an unequaled tool for assessing the investing environment on the second-most-populous continent”.
