Our aim?

To deliver consistent positive returns
– whatever happens in the financial markets.

Ruffer

Ruffer LLP is a London-based firm founded in 1994, with over $32.3 billion of assets under management. 

We provide investment management services to family offices, wealth managers, pension funds, endowments and foundations in parts of Asia.  

Over 26 years the Ruffer portfolio has delivered consistent positive returns with a low correlation to equities (and other asset classes).

This success is the result of a disciplined and genuinely different investment philosophy and approach.
