Aug 25, 2015, 09:30 ET from Worth

NEW YORK, Aug. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Worth, the definitive resource on entrepreneurship, finance, lifestyle and passions for a sophisticated audience, has forged an innovative marketing partnership with Captivate to promote its sixth annual Worth Power 100 list, the authoritative ranking of the most powerful people in global finance. The list will be unveiled on October 5 at the Worth Power 100 Summit, which will be attended by a diverse array of figures from both the public and private sectors. 

"With Captivate as our partner, Worth has a new way to amplify our message and get the word out to an important constituency," said Worth Editor-in-Chief Richard Bradley. "Our mission is to go behind the scenes and unearth the global financial players, whether known or not, who influence our lives and livelihoods—and we are delighted to have yet another platform to tell this important story."

From now until the week of October 5, Captivate—a digital network that delivers news and advertising to 10,000 screens located in 1,600 office buildings in top U.S. markets—will broadcast regular teasers, culminating with comprehensive coverage and highlights of the announcement. Coverage will conclude on October 11, with a look back at the Worth Power 100 event.

"We are pleased to partner with Worth to promote the Worth Power 100," said Captivate CEO Marc Kidd. "This thought-provoking list of global financial powerhouses overlaps smartly with our audience of 10 million+ viewers. Worth's impactful content will only further enhance our goal to deliver relevant information to upscale business professionals."

First released in 2010, the Worth Power 100 encompasses a diverse mix of boldface names and lesser-known figures who, nonetheless, hold tremendous power in the global financial marketplace. Last year, Worth gave its No. 1 spot on the Power 100 to Preet Bharara, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, who had a then near-perfect record prosecuting insider-trading cases and winning billions in settlements. Other top-ranking figures from the 2014 Power 100 included Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, President Barack Obama, Chinese President Xi Jinping, and Morgan Stanley Chairman and CEO James Gorman

The Worth Power 100 is expansive and globally minded, with honorees representing six continents and 20 countries. Worth editors spend roughly one year scrutinizing previous lists and scouring the globe to determine the 100 most influential financial figures.
