Bridgewater Associates LP
Bridgewater Associates is a premier asset management firm, focused on delivering unique insight and partnership for the most sophisticated global institutional investors. The firm attracts independent thinkers who share a commitment to achieving excellence in their respective lines of work and operating in our unique culture of radical transparency and idea meritocracy. Bridgewater’s principal offices are located in Westport, CT — an hour outside New York City.
We are engaged in a tireless effort to develop a fundamental and systematic understanding of how the world’s markets and economies work. That understanding is translated into investment and economic insights that help us achieve an unparalleled level of partnership with our global institutional clients. Powering this engine requires a diverse community of investment professionals, technologists, managers, and other specialists.
Bridgewater’s competitive edge is our pioneering workplace culture that relies on truthful and transparent communication to ensure the best ideas win out. We believe meaningful work and meaningful relationships emerge when you assemble high-performing teams and push them to engage in rigorous and thoughtful inquiry.
The unifying experience at Bridgewater is meaningful work and meaningful relationships — the unique and lasting personal bonds forged out of a purposeful, rigorous, and inclusive work environment. The culture of our firm emphasizes high standards and continuous learning and improvement, centered around a management philosophy described in founder Ray Dalio’s Principles: Life and Work.
