All-Weather funds saw their roughest year yet in 2022. The term "All-Weather" is coined and popularized by Ray Dalio, founder of Bridgewater Associates. He pioneered the world's first fund (a hedge fund) based on the risk parity concept and named it the All-Weather fund. The main idea behind these funds is simple and elegant yet meant to be robust in the face of different market environments.
