Celebrating the Irish in the Financial Industry

For nineteen years, Irish America has sought out and recognized the best and the brightest Irish-American and Irish-born leaders in the financial sphere, and this year is no exception. The fifty honorees of 2016 are an extraordinary, inspiring, and diverse group – from standout rising stars to masterful Wall Street veterans, this year’s list is comprised of both new faces and longtime friends of Irish America. And as varied as the counties they come from, so too are the sectors in which these distinguished financiers work.

The 2016 Wall Street 50 honorees share a commitment to bettering the American economy. Some do this by handling investments and capital, some by developing and implementing the strategies and technology that make it all happen. Together, they recognize a heritage of unrelenting perseverance, a commitment to family, and the responsibility to others because of the struggles of their forebears.


Whether it’s humility or a sense of humor in the face of hardship, determination or an immigrant work ethic, the gift of gab or ease in making friends, our honorees in the following pages all agree they have inherited something unique and personal from their Irish ancestors. As a whole, they are a testament to the power of the diaspora and its ground-breaking influence – from the fourth- generation Irish Americans who are themselves the manifestation of their ancestors’ dreams, to the many Irish-born who continue to work to maintain the strong connections and forge new bonds between our two great countries.

  1. As usual you are biased towards the eastern side of the country (no colleges west of St. Louis?)
