Our aim?

To deliver consistent positive returns
– whatever happens in the financial markets.

Ruffer

Ruffer has been providing investment management services for institutions, pension funds, charities, financial planners and private clients, in the UK and internationally since 1994.

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. Successfully navigating three major market corrections – the dot.com bust, global financial crisis and covid-19.

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