Seeking sustainable returns

For the long haul

At Ruffer, we are committed to being good stewards of our clients’ assets.

To that end, environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are integrated into our investment process.

Whether it’s climate change or indigenous rights, executive pay or workforce safety, we believe our considered approach helps us make better decisions.

To the advantage of our clients’ portfolios. To the benefit of the companies we invest in. And for the good of the environment and society.
