"We see this as a small but potent insurance policy against the continuing devaluation of the world's major currencies," the London-based firm wrote.

"Bitcoin diversifies the company's (much larger) investments in gold and inflation-linked bonds, and acts as a hedge to some of the monetary and market risks that we see," Ruffer said.

The memo comes as Bitcoin's price hit an all-time high, crossing the $20,000 threshold for the first time.  As of 9:56 am ET, Bitcoin was trading at $20,664.  It had earlier peaked at $20,836.
