Ruffer

Ruffer provides investment management services for financial planners across the country.

Your clients like making money, and hate losing it. Most will hate losing money more than they like making it.

At Ruffer, this shapes our investment philosophy, and the way we invest.

We offer a distinctive all-weather approach, designed to perform in all market conditions. Our focus is on capital preservation and prudent growth.

How Financial planners use Ruffer to bolster returns, provide diversification, and help control risk
