This week, journalist and author, Rob Copeland joins to discuss his explosive best-selling book: The Fund: Ray Dalio, Bridgewater Associates and the Unraveling of a Wall Street Legend. Long seen as the paragon of systematic trading, Bridgewater grew to the largest hedge fund in history. Alongside that, its founder, Ray Dalio - a one-time commodities trader- became a business legend with his best-selling books and his devotion to his “principles”. Rob’s book exposes a very different fund and leader. We dive into the unique culture and management style Ray created which includes 24hr surveillance, inquisitions over bagels and very public take downs, and also how exactly the fund is invested. Copeland is a Finance Reporter for the New York Times.
