Awards and recognition

When you invest, it's good to know that you're among the best. Russell Investments has been globally recognised for excellence in the investment industry.

1. The CIO Industry Innovation Awards have various categories; recipients may differ each year and not be repeated.

2. Rankings are based on best-performing brokers as measured by the difference in cost/savings against the universe of Elkins/McSherry, a State Street company. The Elkins/McSherry universe is based on the top 50 brokers in each category by U.S. dollar volume. This is a quarterly ranking based on the previous four-quarters as of March 31, 2017.

3. TCA analytics at Elkins/McSherry, a State Street company, conducted the survey. Transaction costs benchmarked against full-day volume-weighted average price, for the 12-months ended June 30, 2016. The 2017 survey has not been published.

4. Cost performance vs. estimate was rated on a scale from 1 (always missed) to 5 (always beat), with a "3" meaning "usually matched." Therefore, average scores closest to 3.00 are ideal.
