Climate Change Framework 2021
Our inaugural TCFD Report introduces Ruffer’s Climate Change Framework and provides a response to the recommendations of the Taskforce for Climate-related Financial Disclosure. The report exhibits our climate-related activities over the past few years and provides an insight into how our understanding of the risks facing our investee companies has evolved.
Annual Stewardship Report
Our 2020 report highlights the depth and breadth of our stewardship activities. Our focus on engaging directly with company management has afforded us a deeper understanding of the companies in which our clients are invested.
The race to net-zero
The UK made headlines in the summer of 2019 when it became the first major economy to pass a law requiring greenhouse gas emissions to be reduced to net-zero by 2050.
Responsible Investment Report
In our latest quarterly report, Alexia Palacios reviews global efforts in the race to net-zero by 2050, and we share our stewardship and engagement activities during the fourth quarter of 2020.
The geopolitical implications of a changing climate
Since the late eighteenth century, societies have experienced an unprecedented increase in material wealth. This has lifted billions out of poverty and those born today have, on average, a better quality of life and broader opportunities. Yet industrialisation... has had a devastating effect on the world’s natural capital.
Climate change: the roles of divestment and engagement
To tackle climate change, both governments and companies need to act; how companies manage their greenhouse gas emissions has become fundamental to their long-term financial performance. For investors seeking to influence the behaviour of companies, it is not necessary to choose either divestment or engagement, it can be a combination of both.
Corporate governance in Japan
2018 saw both another major corporate governance scandal and the revision of the corporate governance code in Japan. We discuss the areas in which significant change has been achieved, and those in which there is still more work to be done.
Natural capital: why investors should care 
For investors, natural capital is no longer purely an environmental concern. It is also a financial one that should not be ignored. Changes to our natural capital will affect entire sectors bringing investors both opportunities and risks. A deep understanding of these issues will leave investors well place to make good investment decisions.
