The top 5 industries helping finance Hillary Clinton's campaign

How candidates raise money for their presidential campaigns can be confusing.

But the money trail can be broken down into four categories: Political Action Committees (PACs), large individual donors, small donors and the candidate's own finances.

So what are the top industries helping finance Hillary Clinton's campaign?

1. Securities and Investment industry makes it to the top of the list, contributing more than $41 million to Clinton's campaign. Saban Capital Group is the biggest contributor with over $10 million in donations. The group's founder, Haim Saban, shares Clinton's pro-Israel stance.

2. Retired may not sound like an industry, but it includes all the people who list themselves as "retired" on federal documents. Clinton has received over $31 million from retired individuals throughout her campaign.

3. Lawyers and law firms make up more than $23m in Clinton's campaign finances. As a lawyer herself, it's not surprise Clinton pulls more weight with the law community. She has received $21,349,110 compared to Trump's $194,198.

4. The TV, movie, and music industry has contributed more than $17 million in support of Clinton. Directors Steven Spielberg and J.J Abrams along with DreamWorks CEO, Jeffrey Katzenberg, have all donated to Clinton's campaign.

5. Non-profit Institutions comes in as number five on the list. Clinton has received over $11 million from nonprofits throughout her campaign. One of the biggest donors is S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace with over $3 million dollars in support of Clinton's campaign. Clinton and the nonprofit share a desire to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict.
