Hedge fund giant Bridgewater Associates has registered several trademarks in both English and Chinese to address the ‘confusion’ created by Chinese managers imitating the firm’s ‘All Weather’ multi-asset strategy, according to a report by Reuters.

The popularity of Bridgwater’s billionaire boss Ray Dalio among Chinese investors has seen the world’s largest hedge fund ($150bn AUM) overtake both Winton and Man Group to become the top foreign hedge fund house operating in the world’s second largest economy. But the fund’s success has also spawned a number home-grown challengers imitating the All Weather strategy promoting Bridgewater to act.

Bridgewater first onshore China fund launched in 2018 and the company has established two further funds since then.

While the trademarks will prevent rivals from setting up new products using the All Weather name, they won’t protect against rivals adopting the asset diversification strategy itself.
