Ruffer posted 23% as equities collapsed in 2008. Where is the company investing now?
You heard the line that you should keep your head when others lose their heads, but do you know that investors' confidence was 23 percent when stocks plunged 30 percent during the financial crisis?
Ruffer Investment Company is one of the funds attempting to recreate the famous opening line of Rudyard Kipling's Poem If.
The goal is to achieve "consistently positive returns, regardless of how the financial markets develop", which means in practice: "We try to lose no money in any period of 12 months and the value of our investors' assets in comparison to long distance. & # 39;
How does Ruffer do that? What investments led to the British stock market being surpassed by 50 percent in 2008? And could it do that trick again?
Duffan MacInnes, co-manager of Ruffer, accompanies Simon Lambert and Richard Hunter at the Investing Show to explain where the Investment Trust is now invested and how it positions itself to protect investors when a stock market storm turns into a hurricane.
This defensive position means that Ruffer will tend to lag behind as markets rise. However, if the situation worsens, he should be better able to weather the storm.
The goal is not to outperform equity market performance, but to achieve long-term inflation returns in a less volatile manner.
Over the last three years, it has been difficult, with an average annual return of 3.4 percent, but over the long term, over ten years, it has achieved average annual profits of 7.2 percent.
Duncan tells us why it does not matter which correction will ultimately turn into a big drop, but to know that you ultimately want to – and be prepared.
He also tells us where Ruffer sees opportunities and why, like Japan and gold miners, these are usually what people would call value investments.
The trust's top holdings, however, include Ocado – and he explains why the Ruffer managers, despite their relatively high price, believe they may still be undervalued.
After surviving the storm in 2008 and benefiting in 2009, Ruffer has outperformed FTSE All Share over the past 15 years. Could it do this trick again?
