Spotlight on Investment Careers

Working at Bridgewater-Trading-1S3A0019.jpg

A Fundamental Approach to Investing

Our core mission as an organization is to understand the fundamental drivers of markets and turn that understanding into high-quality portfolios and investment advice for our clients.

We do this in three critical ways: by being fundamental, systematic, and diversified. We seek to understand the economy in a fundamental way, uncovering the timeless and universal cause-and-effect linkages that drive global markets. That understanding is implemented systematically and converted into explicit rules that can be rigorously stress-tested. Finally, we create highly diversified portfolios that are not dependent on any one source of return and can survive a wide range of economic environments.

Getting to the Best Ideas
Our unique track record of success is a result of having great people operating in our unique, idea meritocratic culture. We seek intellectually curious, independent thinkers from a wide range of backgrounds to create diversity of thought, and we expect everyone to speak up to make sense of things. This creates an environment in which ideas are debated and challenged to get to the best answers.

Every Monday morning, our research team gathers for a three-hour meeting called “What’s Going On In the World” to discuss how market events are unfolding relative to our understanding.
From pioneering the separation of alpha and beta to our deep roots in China, Bridgewater has been on the front edge of the investment industry for over 45 years. We are always striving to develop the deepest possible understanding of how the world works, and these unique insights help us advocate for what we believe is best for our clients.

Influencing Economic Policy
Every morning Bridgewater shares its latest insights with investors all around the globe through its flagship research publication, Daily Observations. Since the founding of the company, this report has become must-read analysis for thousands of investors and some of the world’s most influential policy makers.
Bridgewater’s clients are among the most sophisticated global institutional investors — including private and public pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, and university endowments — and whose constituents rely on sound investing. Beyond just managing money, we establish decades-long partnerships with our clients to understand their unique needs, remaining in constant dialogue about market observations and portfolio construction.
