BEIJING — American hedge fund manager Ray Dalio is launching a new China fund through a local subsidiary, according to a report in China’s Securities Times, citing sources.

The fund aims to raise more than 3 billion yuan ($468.8 million), according to the report on Tuesday.

Dalio’s Bridgewater Associates is the largest hedge fund in the world, with $223 billion in assets under management as of a July 9 filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Over half, or nearly 59%, of those assets belonged to non-U.S. clients, according to the document.

In 2018, the firm’s Shanghai-based wholly-owned subsidiary, Bridgewater (China) Investment Management, launched its first onshore China product for investors in the mainland.

Bridgewater China did not immediately respond to a CNBC request for comment on the news report.

Dalio is popular in China and has frequently spoken about investment opportunities in the country.

In the wake of Beijing’s regulatory crackdown in July, he encouraged global investors to keep their money in China as an important part of their portfolio, along with U.S. holdings.
