Spotlight on Investment Careers
A Fundamental Approach to Investing
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 we 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.
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.
Investment Research & AnalyticsThe Investment Research & Analytics team is responsible for building out and advancing our understanding of how global markets and economies work — in other words, they're responsible for shaping the way we manage money. The team includes our flagship Investment Associate program which is a vital part of Bridgewater's long-term sustainability, and comprises the group from which we identify and groom top talent.
Investment Logic EngineeringInvestment Logic Engineering is for those who want to solve problems at the intersection of engineering and finance. We look for people with a passion for building data models and algorithmic systems to solve complex investment problems. Ideal candidates have a thirst for discovering what makes things tick, a keen analytical mind, and a desire to work in a dynamic environment.
Investment ImplementationThe Investment Implementation team operates and oversees our systemized logic in order to generate portfolios, choosing which instruments to hold and delivering the sets of trades needed to make it happen. The ideal candidate can interpret and execute ideas: This is the part of the investment engine that makes sure our in-depth understandings are turned into ideal portfolios for our clients.
Client ServiceThe Client Service team engages with clients on the full range of investment issues they face, explaining how our strategies fit into their portfolios and advising on allocation decisions at the overall portfolio level. We look for skilled communicators who can translate our understandings of global markets and economies into meaningful conversations and partnerships with our clients.
