Absolute return investment philosophy
Ruffer is an absolute return manager, focused on delivering positive returns regardless of market conditions since our inception in 1994. Our aims are:
• to not lose money on a 12 month rolling basis
• to deliver a greater return than the risk free alternative of cash on deposit.
By aiming to avoid the cyclical gyrations of the market, we aspire to provide a less volatile experience for our clients.

Ruffer’s investment process
There are two tenets that Ruffer believes are central to absolute return investing
• be agnostic about market direction
• remove market timing from the portfolio

At Ruffer our portfolios always combine a blend of assets that should do well when economic conditions are favourable with assets that can help to preserve capital when markets contract. By combining these assets Ruffer attempts to build portfolios that should be resilient in all market conditions without relying on market timing. Through this approach Ruffer has over the long term delivered returns ahead of cash, UK equities and the WM Charities benchmark with less volatility.

Commitment to charities
Ruffer is a Top 10 Charity Investment Manager (Top 3000 Charities 2018), steadily growing both the number of charity clients and assets under management since 1994. We have a dedicated charities team, led by Christopher Querée, who manages our CIF that incorporates a broad range of ethical investment restrictions.  We are a signatory to the UN PRI and have a manager responsible for co-ordinating our ethical, social and governance policies across the firm.
