Adjective gender rules

Hi, 

What is the gender rule for adjectives when describing two nouns of different gender? See sample phrase:

' con inversores y empresas muy poderosas...'

Does the adjective match the gender (and number) of the last noun?

Hi Ben, 

I believe the masculine noun takes precedence...I hope Inma can confirm and clarify.

However, in the sentence you give here Ben, 'inversor' is both a masculine and feminine noun. 

Saludos
