Russell Investments Short Term Income Pool

A short term fixed income solution that offers the potential for lower volatility than longer duration fixed income funds.

Russell Investments Short Term Income Pool features:

  • A more conservative option than a traditional fixed income approach.
  • An alternative to money market or high interest savings accounts, for investors seeking to earn extra yield in today's low interest rate environment.

  • Potential yield advantage over the benchmark  FTSE TMX  Canada Short Term Overall Bond Index and the fund's peers.
  • Compelling investment grade mandate. Includes access to high quality credit in return for accepting slightly higher volatility. Floating Rate Notes and other non-index exposures.
  • Diversification. Sub-advised by three prominent Canadian bond managers, each bringing complementary investment strategies and relevant expertise. Phillips, Hager & North Investment Management™, Foresters Asset Management Inc and Canso Investment Counsel Ltd.
  • Tax efficiency through our corporate class version.
  • US Dollar Hedged Series option
  • Monthly distributions made up of interest income and return of capital.
