We aim to deliver positive returns come rain or shine. If we are to be good all-weather investors, we cannot be dependent on the direction of markets. To avoid that dependency, we always hold investments in what we call growth and protection. We hold these alongside each other, changing the allocation to each over time. When the market sun shines, we expect our growth assets to prosper. When a market storm hits, our protective assets should provide shelter, defending the portfolio from a downturn. At Ruffer, we are committed to being good stewards of our clients' assets. To that end, environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations are integrated into our investment process. Whether it's climate change or indigenous rights, executive pay or workforce safety, we believe our considered approach helps us make better decisions. To the advantage of our clients' portfolios. To the benefit of the companies, we invest in. And for the good of the environment and society.DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
Ruffer strives for a diverse and inclusive workplace where our staff respect and understand individual differences. To create a truly inclusive culture, we aim to recruit, develop, and retain diverse talent and we positively encourage applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation.
