A clear and repeatable process

Our approach is tried and tested

The Ruffer approach is unchanged from when the firm started in 1994.

We actively manage investments, mainly in conventional assets, and operate freely, without restrictive benchmarks.

In all we do, we seek to be responsible investors, fully integrating environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues into our investment process.

OUR OBJECTIVES

Ruffer’s single investment strategy is defined by two simple investment objectives

  • Not to lose money in any 12 month period
  • Generate returns meaningfully ahead of the return on cash
Deliberately different approach

Our approach starts by managing the risk of losing money.

In constructing portfolios, we strive to own assets that will provide genuine protection in the event of a market downturn.

The asset allocation is dynamic and unconstrained - there is no strategic asset allocation and there are no control ranges.

This results in a global portfolio that looks very different to most.

It will take bravery, imagination, and an uncomfortable portfolio journey to get through the drama.
