Being wary of fraud online

For the most part, the world has moved online.
Unfortunately, fraudsters and criminals have followed.

At Ruffer we seek to be vigilant, and we urge our clients to do the same.

This means being wary of impersonations and requests for personal information. For example, we are aware the Ruffer name has recently been misused on Instagram in an attempt to access money fraudulently from people. 

If you are a Ruffer client, please only get in touch with us the way you always have: over the telephone or by email with your usual Ruffer contact. If you’re in any doubt, please speak to us on +44 (0)20 7963 8100 or via ruffer@ruffer.co.uk

The National Crime Agency have laid out some useful guidance to help protect against fraud. They suggest you –

  • Stop: taking a moment to stop and think before parting with your money or information could keep you safe
  • Challenge: could it be fake? It’s ok to reject, refuse or ignore any requests. Only criminals will try to rush or panic you
  • Protect: contact your bank immediately if you think you’ve fallen for a scam and report it to Action Fraud

There are also other useful sources of information on how you can protect yourself, including the FCA, the Information Commissioner and the national Stop, Take Five campaign. 

Remember, if you think you have received a communication from a fraudulent party, please report this to Action Fraud and break off any contact with the suspected fraudster.

Inflation: bad for portfolios, good for society?
As inflation has soared to its highest level for 40 years, financial markets have taken fright, with most bond and equity markets down significantly so far in 2022. In fact, the US is now officially in a bear market, and inflation pressures show few signs of fading – quite the contrary.
Swimming naked
July 2022: It is hard to overstate how far free and unlimited central bank liquidity has rewired the financial system. As central bankers extract themselves from the monetary rabbit hole they have burrowed their way into, the damage to traditional portfolios is likely to be considerable. This tightening of monetary policy is happening because inflation has returned – with a vengeance.
Ruffer round up – Q2 2022
July 2022: Investment Director Duncan MacInnes joins Rory McIvor for a review of the quarter, discussing the scale of wealth destruction across markets and how they see this rippling out into real world behaviour, and looking forward to what could be on the horizon and what that means for investors.

Investment Review
July 2022: Jonathan Ruffer explains why wage demands are the final element required to fuel the new inflationary epoch. This regime will be good for social mobility in the long run, with the workforce and innovators as the winners. But it might well be brutal for the investment community.
