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.

During the latter part of 2014 the trust moved from a premium to a discount making a slight dent on share price returns. This rare feat could be seen as a buying opportunity, but 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.

The Trust has a 17% position in Japanese equities and over 35% in inflation linked bonds.
