Customized portfolio services
Actively designing solutions for the future.
We bring a carefully considered and robust responsible investing approach aligned to your needs
We believe responsible investing is intelligent investing. As a result, we have embedded responsible investment practices and ESG beliefs into our firm-wide practices and processes, including portfolio management. In addition, our responsible investing and ESG experts are integrated throughout business units, spanning functions and regions.
SEARCHING BEYOND THE STANDARD
Our investment approach goes beyond standard exclusions to identify asset characteristics that are most relevant to individual investment and the overall portfolio. The focus is on exposures that are sustainable as well as material to your organization's investment goals. This allows clients to both remove unwanted characteristics and proactively support organizations' positive contribution to research, innovation and leading best practices.
ACTIVELY LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
As the focus of sustainability best practice shifts over time, we stay committed to adapting our funds to suit the changing global landscape. You can be sure your capital remains invested in the latest sustainability strategies, without continually changing funds.

All Russell Investments solutions, funds and services take ESG factors into consideration.
The Russell Investments ESG Global Equity Pool is a global equity strategy that tilts the portfolio away from those companies with greatest exposure to carbon-related risk and towards those companies expected to contribute to, and benefit from, the energy transition. This Pool also excludes investments in companies that produce tobacco, alcohol or firearms.
Responsible investment services
We work with institutional clients around the world to capture their specific responsible investment requirements within their investment portfolios.
