How to invest in ETFs

Buying and selling ETFs

Investing in ETFs is easy. ETFs are traded on stock exchanges such as the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), so it's exactly like buying or selling shares. ETFs give you the ability to diversify across an asset class in one easy transaction.
There are a number of ways you can invest in Russell Investments ETFs:

  • Contact your financial adviser
  • Contact your full service broker
  • Open an account with a non-advisory or online broker
If you are an institutional investor or adviser, please don't hesitate to contact us about accessing Russell Investments ETFs.

Administration of ETF unitholdings

Your ETF holdings are administered by a Registrar which manages the registry of unit holders, distributions, taxation information and investor communication. We have appointed Computershare Investor Services Pty Limited (Computershare) as the Registrar for Russell Investments ETFs.
Soon after investing in an ETF, it is important that you provide the following information to Computershare:

  • Your Tax File Number (TFN) or Australian Business Number (ABN)
  • Australian bank account details to receive distribution payments. Distributions are not able to be paid until appropriate banking details are received.
  • Instructions regarding re-investment of distributions. Full and partial re-investment options are available if required.
You can also provide your email address and elect to receive all your communications electronically.

After your initial investment, this information can be provided by visiting Computershare's website and registering for online access at or calling 1800 775 383.
