Bridgewater which has been considered a long-winning company manages over US$160 billion of global assets. Its flagship fund Pure Alpha once achieved a 9.4% return during 2008’s global financial crisis through strategic investment, while gaining remarkable returns of 45% and 25% in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
  Meanwhile, the company was subject to “blow-up” rumors that went wild among the financial circle last week.
  During a recent interview with CNBC, founder of Bridgewater Ray Dalio admitted that the coronavirus outbreak’s shock on the market had caught him off-guard. He estimated that the pandemic will inflict US$4 trillion losses on US companies, while global corporate loss due to the crisis can reach US$12 trillion, more than half of United States’ GDP last year.
Datuk Michael Kang, the Chair of SME Association of Malaysia, said the spreading coronavirus pandemic will further exasperate the economy. A shutdown of just 10% of small medium enterprises in Malaysia can make a million Malaysians lose their jobs.
  As Mr. Dalio mentioned, the coronavirus is a crisis that “has not happened in our lifetime before”, leading to an equally unprecedented global recession that revealed potential risks of US and European markets as well as vulnerability of Southeast Asian Economies.
