Ruffer Investment Company

Citywire Selection verdict: The multi asset approach run by Steve Russell and Hamish Baillie is a standout performer over the last decade. It has insulated investors during large market falls with its absolute return approach proving particularly rewarding.

Given its objective the Trust will lag rallying markets, but its truly global approach proved resilient in the face of Q2 Brexit volatility. After a period of fairly pedestrian returns it has added value through its 15% position in Japanese equities and 40% exposure to index linked bonds.

The strategy can also be bought via a fund, CF Ruffer Total Return, for those who prefer to be sheltered from the premium and discount movement
