MICRO-COURSE OVERVIEW

Welcome,

Direct from the founder of the world’s largest hedge fund: +30 million views and counting 

In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City.Over forty years later, Bridgewater has grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to Fortune magazine, and Dalio himself has been named to Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Bridgewater’s success can be largely attributed to two key factors: Their investment strategy: ‘Reducing and synthesizing complex systems into interdependent stocks and flows underpinned by cause and effect relationships’. Bridgewater employs a quantitative type approach to investment.

Perpetuating wisdom 

Most recently, Ray Dalio has been praised for releasing his book entitled Principles: Life and Work. In this and other works he outlines the principles that have guided his impressive success with Bridgewater.

Just as timeless, however, is this 30 minute animated video that he and Bridgewater released a few years ago, which gives their unique template for how the global economy works.

Sectioned into short lessons, this micro-course concludes with Ray’s three rules of thumb – key takeaways for individuals, companies, and policymakers.
