Rudolf Wolff Limited
Rudolf Wolff Limited is a specialist London-based fund management firm, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the United Kingdom.
The name Rudolf Wolff has been associated with the City for almost 150 years. The original Rudolf Wolff was a German metals merchant who established Rudolf Wolff & Co. in London in 1866. That company became a founding member of the London Metal Exchange in 1877 which continues to be the pre-eminent international market for primary base metals.
Marked by the service ethic of the traditional, family-managed, ‘City’ firm, Rudolf Wolff & Co was a pioneer in many fields – notably nurturing some of the investor legends that pioneered the alternative investment industry of commodity traders and hedge funds since the 1980’s. That ethos continues today. The Rudolf Wolff brand name, with all its historic values, was re-launched in 2008 by a team of experienced investment professionals that includes former Rudolf Wolff management. The firm’s motto of ‘traditional values for changing times’ shows that it continues to recognise the importance today of forward-thinking investment combined with old-style prudence, practicality and premium service. These attributes are all core principles of Rudolf Wolff Limited.
Since 2008 the Rudolf Wolff management have focused on building a truly global distribution network with well established, proven and regulated Financial Advisers. The emphasis has been on partnering and contracting with leading advisory groups with global presence, specialist advisers, Private Banks, Insurance Companies and increasingly with Fund Platforms. The way investors manage their portfolios and their relationship with their adviser has, and is continuing to change, significantly. Advisers increasingly providing asset allocation models to meet their clients’ specific medium- and long-term requirements, investing in selected Funds primarily through fund platforms and Insurance Company Bonds.
Rudolf Wolff has teamed with established, proven investment managers to raise assets through their global distribution network. In November 2011, Rudolf Wolff launched their first internally managed, open-ended income fund, domiciled in Bermuda. This was followed by the launch of the Global Income Fund, an Irish UCITS. Since then, the emphasis has been on building an internal expertise as a specialist investment manager.
