Westport is home to two of the biggest hedge funds in the world. There’s Bridgewater Associates, the $160 billion firm with offices on Weston Road and the Sherwood Island Connector, and a workplace environment that is, well, unique.
There’s Axe Capital, which exists only on the Showtime network, but is also — supposedly — based here. It’s a riveting drama about life in that ferocious industry. Folks who know such things say the similarities between Bridgewater and Axe are no coincidence.
