Westport, CT (PRWEB) November 07, 2013
Hearst Media announced that Bridgewater Associates was voted as one of the best places to work in Connecticut for the second year in a row.
Bridgewater, which manages approximately $150 billion in global investements, ranked as the largest and best-performing hedge fund manager in the world in 2010 and 2011, and was also recognized in 2012 and 2013 for having earned its clients more than any other hedge fund in the history of the industry.
Bridgewater’s unique results are a product of its unique culture. Truth and excellence are valued above all else. In order to be excellent, Bridgewater needs to know what’s true, especially those things that they would rather not be true, so that they can decide best how to deal with them. The company wants logic and reason to be the basis for making decisions. It is through striving for excellence by being radically truthful and transparent that Bridgewater builds meaningful work and meaningful relationships.
