10 Nov, 2023 | Return|

"You've got this heads I win, tails I don't lose too much payoff on bonds from this current point."

This week, Duncan MacInnes, co-manager of the A-Rated WS Ruffer Diversified Return fund, joins Square Mile's Alex Farlow to share his views on recession risk and how they are positioning the portfolio to take advantage of that. He continues by outlining their two biggest risk positions, and why they think the catalyst for the yen appreciation has only just begun.
