Ruffer

Ruffer has been providing investment management services to individuals and families since 1994.

To invest well, we need to take on risk. With risk comes great responsibility.

Our preoccupation is with not losing money, rather than charging headlong for growth.

It’s by putting safety first that we have made good money for our clients. Through boom and bust. For over 26 years.

If we keep doing our job well, we will protect our clients’ capital – and increase its real value substantially.
