Only one fundster ranks among the 100 top CEOs, at least according to one publication.
] Larry Fink sits
in the #34 spot on Harvard Business Review's just-released
2018 list of the 100 "Best-Performing CEOs in the World" (down from 32 last year). Fink is the only U.S. fund firm chief on the list, which is topped this year by Spain's Pablo Isla of Inditex.
Yet there are three other fundster-adjacent names on the list. Bruce Flatt
of Toronto-based Brookfield Asset Management
ranks 60th. (Brookfield recently ramped up its U.S. mutual fund presence via acquisition
.) And Andre Desmarais
and Paul Desmarais Jr.
of Montreal-based Power Corporation
(the ultimate parent of Putnam) share the 90th spot on the list.
According to the publication, the ranking is "based primarily on financial returns over each CEO's entire tenure."
