Bridgewater has since grown to be the largest and most successful hedge fund in the world, according to LCH Investments; Bridgewater is also the fifth most important private company in the U.S., according to Fortune Magazine.

Called the “Steve Jobs of Investing” by aiCIO Magazine and Wired Magazine, Ray has led Bridgewater to introduce several industry-changing approaches to investing, including risk parity, the separation of alpha and beta, and currency overlay strategies.

​WMI is proud to present an exceptional opportunity to meet and dialogue with Mr. Ray Dalio, who is the Founder, Co-Chairman and Co-Chief Investment Officer of Bridgewater Associates, a global macroeconomic investment management firm that he started in 1975.

A global macro investor for more than 50 years, Ray has received several lifetime achievement awards for his contributions to investing. For his significant influence on economic policy makers’ thinking, TIME Magazine named him one of the “100 Most Influential People” in the world. Ray is also one of the 50 largest philanthropists in the U.S., according to Forbes Magazine.

Ray is the author of two books that convey some of the principles that have helped him: “Principles: Life and Work” which is a New York Times #1 Bestseller and has sold over 2.3 million copies worldwide, and “Principles for Success”, which distills the 600-page classic into an entertaining and easy read for all ages. He is also the author of “Principles for Navigating Big Debt Crises” which is the first public dissemination of his and Bridgewater’s research on these economic events which enabled them to anticipate the 2008 Global Financial Crisis. Perhaps most importantly though, at this time Ray is a professional capitalist who believes capitalism needs to be reformed intelligently and in a bipartisan way. His reasons for holding this view are laid out in his piece “Why and How Capitalism Needs to be Reformed,” available on LinkedIn.
