KEY BENEFITS TO OUR RESPONSIBLE INVESTING APPROACH
We reflect what matters most to you and your investment goals through a robust, integrated process.
AN INTEGRATED APPROACH
We believe that responsible investing is intelligent investing. As a result, we have integrated material environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into those relevant investment practices, including research, portfolio management and active ownership.
In addition, our investment experts are well-versed in responsible investing across the globe. We continue to enhance our process to embrace responsible investing at Russell Investments.
