Who's in the right place at the right time?

Chairman, Emaar; Director General, Dubai Department of Economic Development

Fast growing and modern, Dubai may be the most open and confident place in the Middle East. Alabbar keeps the investment flowing in. He's also a real estate developer - and a confidant of the ruler, Sheikh Mohammed.

Haim Saban
Co-Owner, Univision

The billionaire co-owner of the largest Hispanic media company is poised to profit from that ethnic group's growing economic clout. (He's also pals with Hillary Clinton and Rupert Murdoch.)

Michael Funk
CEO , United Natural Foods

The distributor dominates the organic wholesale business, supplying Whole Foods, Kroger, and mom-and-pops around the country.

As head of China's $200 billion state investment fund, Lou has already put $3 billion into private equity giant Blackstone. His shopping list includes mining, oil, and gas companies around the world.

Frances Beinecke
