RESPONSIBLE
INVESTING

Actively designing solutions for the future

Overview

At Russell Investments, we believe true sustainable investing is a long-term investment approach that accounts for a wide range of dynamic environmental, social and governance factors.

Whether you are a large superannuation fund or a small for-purpose organisation, there is increasing pressure to determine an investment solution that reflects your organisations’ values, manages risk and meets your investment objectives.

We draw upon our integrated multi-asset capabilities to support our clients in Australia and around the world to navigate the evolving responsible investment agenda.

Key benefits

Expanded universe
of factors

When designing our portfolios we use an expanded universe of measures to identify the asset characteristics that are most relevant to the fund and accurately capture the desired exposure without unnecessary risk.

A+ Grade from PRI

We received an “A+” grade from the PRI, the highest possible, in the eight categories. Encompassing strategy, governance, direct active management, manager selection, manager appointment, and manager monitoring.

Applied research

We continue to monitor the latest sustainability reporting and measures to adapt our funds in line with the changing global agenda and maintain our client’s portfolios with accurate exposure management.
