Ruffer Radio: Winning by not losing – protection strategies
June 2022: Avoiding major drawdowns in markets is key to outperforming over the long-term. It may sound obvious, but in a world of near universal asset vulnerability, it has seldom been more important to stand resolute against falling markets. In this episode, Lauren French and Andrew van Biljon discuss Ruffer's approach to protecting against tail risks in the market and they lift the lid on some of the more creative strategies in the portfolio today.

Nowhere to hide?
May 2022: So far this year, the prices of almost all conventional assets are down. Supposedly diversified portfolios have turned out to be anything but. To preserve their capital, investors will require a new approach to constructing portfolios - flexible, adaptable, robust, and responsive.
Taking back control?
In the late 1970s, the world was on the cusp of radical change. The ‘Deflation Machine’ was being born. Deng Xiaoping began reforming China’s moribund economy. In the West, liberal, free-market ideals were gaining traction, ideals that underpinned the subsequent regime of rapid, disinflationary global growth.

In the depths of addiction nothing else matters. The pursuit is focused, relentless and uncompromising – dismissive of any potential consequences. So what happens when the addiction is to risk?
OUR THINKING
While the political climate heads for a deep freeze, the planet is heating up.
Alexander Chartres, Investment Director
Forty years of a bull market, where for decades ‘buying the dip’ has been a sure-fire idea, is clashing against circumstances and events which may break this benign and predictable investment pattern.
Jonathan Ruffer , Chairman
I have two wolves inside me: one is the need to take risks; the other is an awareness of the danger of those risks.
Alex Lennard, Investment Director
If you get money, hang on to it or safely invest. That line about a fool and his money are soon parted is true.
