When we think of sexy couples, we think of Hollywood stars. People who live their lives in front of a camera and are often paid a hefty amount of money on the strength of their flawless good looks. But, there is another class of sexy couples that are rarely thought of. They are powerful, privileged, and extremely intelligent people who have managed to find love in their personal lives and success in their professional lives. They are the power couples of Wall Street.
What goes into making a power couple sexy? You could, perhaps, assume that all of their sexiness must come from their looks. But that's not quite the whole story. There are many things that can make a person and a couple sexy. Sex appeal comes from intelligence, confidence, wealth, and - of course - power. And the following fifteen couples have it all, forging their path to success together on Wall Street.
