New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi was on Monday ranked 13 on the 'Bloomberg Markets Most Influential' list.

"He (Modi) won election in May 2014 by the widest margin in 30 years, giving him a shot at making some investment-friendly reforms that have faced stubborn resistance in the world's largest democracy. India might grow faster than China this year," Bloomberg said in a statement.

The list is topped by US Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen.

Yellen is followed by Xi Jinping and Apple CEO Tim Cook.
