At Russell Investments, we believe true sustainable investing is a long-term investment approach that accounts for a wide range of dynamic environmental, social and governance factors.
Whether you are a large superannuation fund or a small for-purpose organisation, there is increasing pressure to determine an investment solution that reflects your organisations’ values, manages risk and meets your investment objectives.
We draw upon our integrated multi-asset capabilities to support our clients in Australia and around the world to navigate the evolving responsible investment agenda.
When designing our portfolios we use an expanded universe of measures to identify the asset characteristics that are most relevant to the fund and accurately capture the desired exposure without unnecessary risk.
A+ Grade from PRI
We received an A+ for Strategy & Governance and Listed Equity Incorporation and an A rating across all other assessment modules. Encompassing strategy, governance, direct active management, manager selection, manager appointment, and manager monitoring.
We continue to monitor the latest sustainability reporting and measures to adapt our funds in line with the changing global agenda and maintain our client’s portfolios with accurate exposure management.
