As a Portfolio Associate you will construct portfolios and trades for all assets under management.  You will oversee a systematic process that implements Bridgewater's best understanding of portfolio generation.  You will be required to gain a deep understanding of how markets work, how Bridgewater thinks about managing assets along several different dimensions (including diversification, risk targeting, trade pacing, and security selection), how to tie those together, and how to apply that understanding on a daily basis to assess and synthesize outcomes.  You will regularly communicate your understanding and assessment to a diverse group of people, including senior investment managers, traders, and developers.  You will partner with technologists and researchers to constantly improve our processes, focusing on increasing efficiency or the implementation of new logic or portfolios.

  • Are analytical, highly logical, and structured
  • Are deeply interested in understanding financial markets
  • Think in terms of systems and naturally look for ways to solve problems through the evolution of those systems
  • Hold a high degree of personal responsibility and ownership in everything you do

  • Executing and overseeing the systemized logic we use to generate client portfolios and trades every day
  • Understanding and effectively communicating the state of those portfolios to our senior investment teams and CIOs
  • Working with technologists and researchers to construct new investment implementation systems or overhaul old ones
  • Driving initiatives to improve the quality, reliability, and efficiency of the systems you own
  • Evolving the methods and best practices used by the broader investment community


You'll Grow with us by:

  • Undergoing a training program of structured classes and on-the-job apprenticeship
  • Taking ownership of increasingly complex systems and processes

  • Rotating through Bridgewater's investment departments to broaden your exposure and understanding
