Why It’s Worth Monitoring Bridgewater Holdings

If you’re reading this post, you’re probably well aware of the investing prowess of Raymond Dalio. The billionaire investor, hedge fund manager, and philanthropist founded one of the largest hedge funds on Wall Street. You may have also heard of Dalio’s Principles which is a 123-page manifesto giving readers a glimpse into the billionaire’s philosophies about living life and managing people and organizations.

Principles is a required read for all Bridgewater employees which hints at how core he believes these guidelines are to their investment strategy and resulting performance. Dalio clearly has what it takes to succeed and currently manages more than $10 billion in assets.

Managers with more than $100 million in qualifying assets under management are required to disclose their holdings to the SEC each quarter via 13F filings. Qualifying assets include long positions in U.S. equities and ADRs, call/put options, and convertible debt securities. Shorts, cash positions, foreign investments and other assets are not included. It is important to note that these filings are due 45 days after the quarter end date. Therefore, Bridgewater’s holdings above represent positions held as of March 31st and not necessarily reflective of the fund’s current stock holdings.

However, most can agree that with thousands of stocks traded on U.S. exchanges, doing thorough research on each one is nearly impossible for smaller investors. Leveraging the resources of the largest hedge funds on Wall Street can be a powerful way to narrow down the list.
