Why Ruffer?

And as important, why not?

Before taking on a new client, we do all we can to set realistic expectations about what to expect from us.

We are keen to help people make informed decisions about whether Ruffer is, or isn’t, a good fit for them.

To us, the ‘why nots’ are as important as the ‘whys’.

Why Ruffer?
Safety first Whatever happens in the markets, we’ll stay focused on protecting your capital. 
Good track record Over 29 years our performance has been strong. We’ve made good money for clients.
Culture of service We’ll work to earn your trust, and see it as our duty to act in your best interests.

Why not?
Dull patches There may be months or years where markets race ahead, and we plod in the slow lane.
No menu We focus on delivering one philosophy well – rather than trying to appeal to everyone.
We make mistakes Investing well isn’t easy. We get things wrong. At times we may lose you money.

 


Why now

Ruffer portfolios are always invested for both calm and stormy seas - always holding assets for growth and protection alongside each other.

We never aim to be absolutely right, because that risks us being absolutely wrong. This, intelligently implemented, will remain a defining feature of our way of investing.

We remain prepared for all weathers.

Our preoccupation with fear makes us the gazelles of the investment market, always alert to dangers.
Jonathan Ruffer, Chairman
The core business of active investment management is simple. Identify the gaps between reality and the markets’ perception of it. Then exploit the difference.
