Bridgewater Associates LP founder Ray Dalio can rattle off the investing fads he’s witnessed since he began trading as a 12-year-old golf caddie: the Nifty-50 stock craze of the 1970s, the 1980 gold bubble and even the 60- 40 stock-to-bond mix.
Dalio, 62, built Bridgewater into the world’s largest macro hedge-fund firm, with $122 billion in total assets, by tacking against consensus. He’s created a distinct workplace culture and a research-driven investing process that spreads risk across scores of markets, Bloomberg Markets magazine reports in its October special issue on the 50 Most Influential people in global finance.
