Russell Investments Balanced Growth

Target asset allocation: 48% Equity / 46% Fixed Income / 6% Real Assets


Goal

Provide long-term capital growth with some income, primarily through exposure to Canadian and foreign equity securities and, to a lesser extent, exposure to Canadian fixed income investments. Also available with a 7% distribution option.

Consider this portfolio if you:

  • Have a low to medium tolerance for risk
  • Want to invest for the intermediate to long-term
  • Are looking for income and long-term growth
  • Want to invest in equities (Canadian and foreign) and fixed income.
  • For investors purchasing Distribution Series units, want specific monthly distributions and will accept a return of capital.

¹Compound growth calculations are used only for the purpose of illustrating the effects of compound growth and are not intended to reflect future value of any mutual fund or returns on investment in any mutual fund.

Series F is a wrap or fee-for-service program and as such, the performance shown does not include the advisory fee paid by the investor to the dealer that would have reduced returns. Other series of units of the fund are subject to higher management fees and/or expenses which result in lower returns for those series than cited above.  Annual returns are calendar year returns for the last ten years or since inception if the Fund has less than ten years of history. Performance is annualized except for periods of less than one year.
