Founder and Chief Investment Officer Mentor, Bridgewater Associates
In the 1960s, while working as a caddie, Ray would hear about stocks from the golfers whose clubs he lugged around the links. He saved up and bought a stock of his own—Northeast Airlines, which was selling for less than $5 a share—that soon tripled in value.
Shortly after earning his MBA at Harvard University, Ray started working as a clerk on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. And just two years after receiving his diploma, Ray founded an investment firm called Bridgewater Associates from his two-bedroom New York City apartment.
During the early days of Bridgewater, Ray shared his market insights in the form of “Bridgewater Daily Observations” sent via telex, an early form of electronic communication. These observations, and the decisions that followed, helped Ray grow Bridgewater into the largest hedge fund in the world: Its flagship fund returned an average of 11.3 percent for its clients over more than three decades.
