Investment Review
July 2021: We have been talking of inflation for well over a decade – which is not the same thing as calling its timing. An impasse was created by the failure of the economy to grow after the 2008 crisis – all the risks (as we patiently explained) were deflationary, and in vain did the central banks and governments try to force an inflationary impulse into a sluggish world.

Bitcoin – the future arrived early
July 2021: The best investments are often the least comfortable ones. This is certainly the case with our decision to add bitcoin exposure to our portfolios in November last year.
Responsible Investment Report
In our latest quarterly report, Investment Manager Rory Goodman examines the global significance of US President Joe Biden's new emission reduction targets announced at the Earth Day summit, and we share our stewardship and engagement activities during the second quarter of 2021.
Navigating information
It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the volume of information aimed at us. Inundated by a daily torrent of headlines, images, messages and data, we can be left feeling unable to process it to a satisfying degree. For investors, navigating information is central to being effective. Insights from information theory and gauge theory can help.
OUR THINKING – ALL ARTICLES
The markets remain our master – they will do what they do, when they do it: we must do our best in that context. And that context is about to change.
Jonathan Ruffer, Chairman
A once in a generation transition into a world of higher inflation and inflation volatility is underway.
Duncan MacInnes, 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.
Annie Nightingale, BBC Radio 1’s longest-serving DJ, Interviewed in The Daily Telegraph
We're moving from a world where profit trumped politics, to one where politics trump profit.
