We reflect what matters most to you and your investment goals through a robust, integrated process.
Responsible investing is intelligent investing
Whether you're driven by personal or stakeholder values, aim to mitigate risk or need to comply with regulation - our approach to responsible investing integrates what matters most to you.
A sound awareness of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and a robust process are integral for responsible investing. In our view, they can help deliver strong investment returns and meet objectives over the long-term.
A deep understanding
A deep understanding of how ESG factors impact security prices is value-adding to a skilful investment process.
Embedding ESG considerations into a firm's culture and processes improves the likelihood of prolonged and successful investing.
Putting beliefs into practice
We incorporate responsible investing in our investment manager evaluation process, our portfolio management, our advisory services, and through implementing proprietary solutions to meet client needs.
Managers and products are evaluated, ranked and surveyed one by one. As such, our portfolio managers select managers and products with full knowledge of their ESG metrics and how it is implemented.
ESG research and metrics
We research and report active manager ranks and metrics and have developed proprietary metrics for our direct investing capabilities.
Culture and processes
Sustainable practices are incorporated into our own business just as we ask our managers to do.
We believe voting is a part of a share’s value-creation process. We are active owners of all our holdings and focus on specific ESG actions within our engagement activities.
Climate Change Policy
Russell Investments' policy is to research, measure, report and consider climate change risk and opportunities as integral parts of our investing practice, our active ownership, and our business operations. Our measures, reported metrics, and consideration of climate risk and opportunities are integrated into our sub-advisor research and selection, portfolio management, advice, proxy voting and shareholder engagement, and day-to-day business.
