The Russell investment approach

Our time-tested investment approach rests on the following foundations:
 

  • Diversifying among asset classes is one of the most prudent approaches to managing risk.
  • Investment styles move in and out of favour with the market.
  • Even the best investment managers do not stay on top for extended periods of time.

Our sophisticated strategy is designed to help you reduce risk and build long-term wealth. To develop long-term financial security, you and your adviser can diversify portfolios at these three levels, based on your investment goals and risk tolerance. This is our MULTI ASSET MULTI STYLE MULTI MANAGER™ approach.
