Achieving desired client outcomes

Our approach to equity investing

Investing in Russell Investments' equity funds gives you exposure to equities and can deliver strong returns on a risk-adjusted basis. So our equity portfolio managers’ main goal is to deliver strong returns with the minimum amount of carefully managed risk. Our capital markets analysis and strategy research is critical to identifying the correct framework for each portfolio. Strategies are selected based on their contribution to returns, risk profile, and fit with portfolio objectives.

Harnessing opportunities from our winning strategies also improves consistency.

And diversity is important, allowing us to use multiple ways of capturing return opportunities and managing total portfolio risks, to increase the certainty of positive investment outcomes. We build robust portfolios exploiting multiple time horizons, styles, countries, currencies and sectors. Each seeks to bring you returns through the most attractive risk and return trade-offs available, considering manager alpha, strategic views and tactical positioning.
