US WEALTH MANAGEMENT magazine Worth has released its Power 100 list of the most powerful people in the world of finance, and three of the top ten are Europeans – two of whom are women.

The list of 100 includes a host of familiar names including New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg (at #95), economist and New York Times blogger Paul Krugman (#97), Rupert Murdoch (#92) and Bill Gates (#27).
