Hedge fund billionaire Dalio to open office in Singapore

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Ray Dalio, founder of hedge fund Bridgewater Associates LP, is opening an office in Singapore to run his investments and philanthropy in the region.

Dalio has been building relationships in Singapore and China for the past three decades and he and his family believe it is "high time" they have a physical presence there, a statement from the Dalio Family Office said on Friday.

"In that way they become more immersed in what is going on," the statement said.

Singapore has long attracted investors from China and Southeast Asian countries by offering tax incentives and fast-tracking super-rich individuals for permanent residency.

Family offices handle the wealth of the very rich and their kin. The family office industry grew in assets under management from about $4 trillion in 2017 to $5.9 trillion last year, according to market research firm Campden Research.

China's Xi says navy should become world class | Reuters

BEIJING Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday called for greater efforts to make the country's navy a world class one, strong in operations on, below and above the surface, as it steps up its ability to project power far from its shores.China's navy has taken an increasingly prominent role in recent months, with a rising star admiral taking command, its first aircraft carrier sailing around self-ruled Taiwan and a new aircraft carrier launched last month.With President Donald Trump promising a US shipbuilding spree and unnerving Beijing with his unpredictable approach on hot button issues including Taiwan and the South and East China Seas, China is pushing to narrow the gap with the U.S. Navy.Inspecting navy headquarters, Xi said the navy should "aim for the top ranks in the world", the Defence Ministry said in a statement about his visit."Building a strong and modern navy is an important mark of a top ranking global military," the ministry paraphrased Xi as saying.
