No compensation was provided in connection with obtaining or using the above rankings unless otherwise noted in the bullet points above. Past performance is not a guide to future performance, future returns are not guaranteed, and a complete loss of original capital may occur. Every investment involves risk and in volatile or uncertain market conditions, significant variations in the value or return on that investment may occur. Investments in hedge funds are complex, speculative and carry a high degree of risk, including the risk of a complete loss of an investor’s entire investment. Certain transactions, including those involving leverage, futures, options, and other derivatives, give rise to substantial risk and are not suitable for all investors. Fluctuations in exchange rates could have material adverse effects on the value or price of, or income derived from, certain investments. An investment in any Bridgewater fund or strategy is suitable only for sophisticated investors and requires the financial ability and willingness to accept the high risks inherent in such an investment (including the risk of loss of their entire investment) for an indefinite period of time. Ratings based on voting may not be representative of any one client’s experience because the rating reflects an average/sample of experiences. See Important Disclosures and Other Information.
