Providing potential for attractive yield and capital growth
What are income portfolios?
Income-oriented portfolios are designed for investors at or near retirement, seeking a responsible level of income and growth in a risk-controlled manner.
Russell Investments income portfolios aim to provide investors with an attractive yield comprised of interest income, dividends and foreign income. A secondary objective is growth of capital over the long term. To pursue these objectives, the asset allocation of the portfolios can be tilted toward short or medium-term opportunities to enhance yield, growth, or defensive characteristics.
