It's all change on the Debrett’s 500 list this year, with 311 new entries on the annual roll of honour, which names Britain’s most influential people.

Hats off, then, to the new financial heavyweights including Virgin Money chief executive Jayne-Anne Gadhia, Newton Investment chief and 30 Percent Club founder Helena Morrissey and Aberdeen Asset Management boss Martin Gilbert.
