Ti­tle: Founder, Bridge­wa­ter As­so­ci­ates Coun­try: US Age: 66

Ray Dalio is the founder, chair­man and chief in­vest­ment of­fi­cer of Bridge­wa­ter As­so­ci­ates, one of the largest and most suc­cess­ful hedge funds in the world. A self-made bil­lion­aire, Dalio is man­ag­ing a $160 bil­lion port­fo­lio, and is him­self worth at least $17 bil­lion. Since be­ing named to TIME mag­a­zine’s 2012 list of the most in­flu­en­tial peo­ple in the world, his in­vest­ment se­crets have be­come highly cov­eted and last year he shared them in a 30 minute Youtube video, which has been watched more than 2 mil­lion times.

His self-pub­lished man­ual ‘Prin­ci­ples’ on money man­age­ment and lead­er­ship is re­garded as a bi­ble among the in­vest­ment world. Dalio is com­pletely trans­par­ent to his em­ploy­ees, and it has worked in fa­vor for him: Bridge­wa­ter is of­ten viewed as cultish, and is among the best places to work on Wall Street.

Ray Dalio at­tributes his suc­cess by re­mind­ing him­self of de­ci­sions he’s made which didn’t work.

“Prin­ci­ples are ways of suc­cess­fully deal­ing with re­al­ity to get what you want out of life.” Ray Dalio
