Who do you trust in the world of finance? Not many I imagine after the reputations of many of those in the finance world has been tarnished by failures and the blind eyes turned by those in charge. Readers Digest recently published the 100 most trusted people in America. In scouring this list, I only found 5 people I thought would count in the finance category. These people are in all areas of finance- from Nobel Prize Winners to newspaper columnists:

5. Paul Krugman – Columnist – New York Times

Columnist on the Op-Ed Page and professor of Economics and International Affairs at Princeton University, his professional reputation rests largely on work in international trade and finance. He also received the John Bates Clark medal given to “that economist under forty who is adjudged to have made a significant contribution to economic knowledge.”

4. Steve Forbes – CEO – Forbes Media

Under his reign, Forbes has become one of the most powerful sources for investment information and the famous rich lists. Leading the way for business decision makers and investors, Mr Forbes is number 4.

3. Warren Buffett – CEO Berkshire Hathaway

The 82 year old billionaire and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway is number 3. Maybe because we know he can bail anybody out. If he wanted.

2. Alvin E. Roth – Nobel Prize Winning Economist

Number 2 on the list is the winner of The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2012.

1. Lloyd Shapley – Nobel Prize Winning Economist

The second half of this Nobel Prize winning team, Lloyd Shapley also won The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2012. Their prize motivation being “for the theory of stable allocations and the practice of market design”.

What do you think? Would you trust these men? Is there anyone else you can think of that you’d trust in finance? Let us know your thoughts.
