LF Ruffer Japanese

The LF Ruffer Japanese Fund aims to provide capital growth by investing primarily in Japanese equities.

We are optimistic on the investment opportunities in Japan. By understanding the nature of the country’s long slump, diligent stock pickers can capitalise on the inefficiencies in the Japanese equity markets.
