The world-renowned hedge fund Bridgewater Associates, have made a “Coronavirus statement” with roughly $15B in bets against companies in Europe, including one UK company.

Where & Who?

The distribution of bets across Europe are as follows;

  • $5.3B France
  • $4.7B Germany
  • $2.7B Netherlands

The bets include;
  • Dutch chip maker ASML Holdings

It is worth noting however, that Bridgewater may hold more European stocks than it is shorting and the $15B could be a “coronavirus precautionary measure”.
