Ruffer LLP – 25 years, $25 billion under management, 1 investment approach.

At Ruffer, our aim is to preserve and grow capital in all environments, generating positive returns (net of fees) regardless of how financial markets perform. Our investment philosophy and approach have remained unchanged since the firm started in 1994. Since then, we have broadly achieved our objectives, having delivered annualised returns significantly ahead of cash whilst growing our clients' capital through both bull and bear markets. In so doing, Ruffer's long-term returns have not only outpaced inflation, but also global equities and commonly-followed composite benchmarks, with lower volatility. Our returns also exhibit a low correlation to equity markets and alternative asset classes. Given our focus on wealth preservation, we construct portfolios seeking to avoid large losses and to harness the power of compounding over time. To that end, we always maintain a balance of offsetting investments within a portfolio, each held to address positive and negative market environments. ESG (environmental, social and governance) has been a key element of Ruffer’s investment process for over a decade. Our focus is engagement on ESG issues with the companies we invest in, rather than merely disinvesting.
