Foreign exchange trading

High FX transaction costs can be a thing of the past, if using the Russell Investments Agency Trading Service. Our approach is unique in the marketplace, reducing transaction costs through both our sophisticated crossing approach, and by trading the residual with multiple counterparties. Clients benefit from the consistently low spreads we achieve (of less that 0.5 basis points) and from fully transparent reporting. Discover how you can reduce your foreign exchange trading costs

Currency overlay – passive or dynamic

Currency volatility in an international portfolio can swamp the return from the main asset. We can help investors design a cost effective currency risk management program to reduce uncompensated risk. We offer both passive or dynamic hedging programs. View details into our currency overlay service
