Investing in volatile times
Important truths to remember about market volatility

At Russell Investments, we help investors manage downside risk in three ways: by diversifying sources of returns, by using a robust dynamic asset allocation process to guide tactical positioning, and by seeking effective implementation capabilities. In this environment of high inflation and volatility, we have been dynamically adjusting our portfolio positioning to manage downside risk.

What is risk management?

When it comes to investing, risk management is the active mitigation of uncertainty that surrounds all investment opportunities. Investing is inherently risky. At Russell Investments, we do not seek to avoid risk, but rather work to ensure that the right risks are taken, with the highest likelihood of compensation. We work to ensure exposure to uncompensated risk is minimized.

The impact of staying invested during market turmoil

Staying the course during market volatility is often difficult for many investors. Some choose to move to cash investments, while others try to time the market. Unfortunately, these investors are often buying high and selling low—and miss the rallies that follow the challenging periods.
