Childhood and Adolescence

Stephanie Leigh Ruhle was born in Park Ridge, New Jersey, on December 24, 1975. Except for the fact that she was raised in Park Ridge, little is known about her early life and family.

She received a bachelor’s degree in international business from ‘Lehigh University’ in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, where she graduated in 1997. Her principal themes were studied in Italy, Guatemala, and Kenya. She returned to Lehigh University in 2017 to deliver the graduating address.

Career & Public Figure

She interned with Merrill Lynch while a student, and shortly after graduation, she joined ‘Credit Suisse’ in 1997. She worked for Credit Suisse First Boston for six years as a vice president in the hedge fund sales division of the Swiss multinational financial services holding firm.

In 2003, she joined ‘Deutsche Bank,’ where she worked as a credit representative for hedge funds. She eventually progressed to the position of managing director in the global banking and financial services company’s Global Markets Senior Relationship Management, which she departed after eight years. During her time at ‘Deutsche Bank,’ she established the Global Market Women’s Network to assist women in senior positions.

Ruhle joined the private financial software, data, and media company ‘Bloomberg L.P.’ after about fourteen years in the finance industry. She joined the company’s global television network, ‘Bloomberg Television,’ in October 2011.
She worked as a managing editor and news anchor for ‘Bloomberg Television.’ Along with Erik Schatzker, she worked as co-host of ‘Inside Track,’ a two-hour early morning program about investing aimed at a US audience.

In 2012, she and Schatzker joined the two-hour late-morning program ‘Market Makers.’ She and co-anchor David Westin co-hosted the show ‘Bloomberg GO.’ She remained the editor-at-large of ‘Bloomberg News,’ a wire service branch of ‘Bloomberg L.P.,’ an international news agency.

She profiled a number of big names, including Donald Trump, a business magnate and TV personality who is currently serving as the 45th President of the United States; Terry Lundgren, the CEO and Chairman of Macy’s; Jamie Dimon, the Chairman and CEO of ‘JP Morgan’; Lloyd Blankfein, the CEO of ‘Goldman Sachs’; and Michael Bloomberg, the founder, owner, and CEO of ‘Bloomberg L.P.’

She was the first writer, along with other Bloomberg reporters Mary Childs and Bradley Keoun, to break the story of London-based trader Bruno Iksil, dubbed the “London Whale,” who was responsible for the JPMorgan Chase trading loss in 2012.

She demonstrated through her findings that Iksil accumulated such positions in order to manipulate pricing in the $10 trillion credit derivative market. She was featured on the cover of ‘Working Mother’ magazine in October 2012. She was also featured on the cover of ‘Fit Pregnancy’ magazine in the April/May 2013 issue.

Ruhle responded to controversial remarks by American investor, philanthropist, and hedge fund manager Paul Tudor Jones about the absence of female traders on Wall Street with a provocative column in the ‘Huffington Post’ in June 2013. The piece drew a lot of attention from both the financial industry and the media.

In 2013, she conducted an interview with Martha Stewart, an American writer, businesswoman, and television personality, in which the latter questioned Gwyneth Paltrow’s place in the “lifestyle business.” The enmity between Stewart and Paltrow was stoked and made public as a result of this.

She spoke with Donald Trump, the Republican presidential contender at the time, in 2015. Trump said during the interview that “the World Trade Center fell down under President George W. Bush’s rule,” which was widely condemned in the media.

She continued to host and produce the 2015 documentary ‘Haiti: Open For Business?,’ which investigates Haiti’s rising market five years after a devastating earthquake struck the Caribbean country.
Ruhle was included in the 2015 short film ‘Shark Land:

A Mission Blue and Fusion Expedition,’ which raises awareness about the threats and sufferings encountered by the sharks of the national park ‘Cocos Island.’She was a member of the iMentor Corporate Advisory Board and co-chaired the steering committee of Women on Wall Street (WOWS).

She currently serves on the corporate council of the non-profit organization ‘The White House Project,’ as well as the boards of trustees for ‘The Women’s Bond Club,’ ‘100 Women in Hedge Funds,’ and Girls, Inc. New York. She’s also on the board of the ‘React To Film’ documentary film series, which focuses on social issues.

Ruhle, who is currently a columnist for Shape magazine’s website Shape.com, launched the Corporate Investment Bank (CIB) Women’s Network. ‘Business Insider,’ ‘Glass Hammer,’ ‘201 Magazine,’ and IWantHerJob’ all published profiles of this powerful and no-nonsense woman.
