Bridgewater, the massive hedge fund run by Ray Dalio, has increased its positions in emerging-market exchange-traded funds.

Here are his EM ETF investments, according to his SEC filings:

Its position in EEM climbed to $2.5 billion during the fourth quarter, from $1.4 billion at the end of the previous quarter, while its stake in VWO rose to $3 billion from $2 billion.


Its position in the iShares MSCI Brazil ETF (EWZ) increased by more than 50% to $156.6 million from $62.3 million previously.

The problem is that his fund’s quant-driven strategies are so complex that its hard to know whether these are actually bets on emerging markets or on something else completely different.
