Successfully reaching your desired investment goal

If you are a goal-oriented investor, then we think you should consider multi-asset investing.

As the name implies, multi-asset looks at your portfolio from multiple angles. Instead of what might be a shortsighted focus on this quarter's performance, a multi-asset portfolio also brings in the dimensions of diversification, market cycles, risk factors, and complementary strategies. These combinations are not always designed to provide short-term numbers. Instead, their aim is to provide as much certainty as possible in achieving your desired outcome.

Think about how complex and how global markets are. Think about how much harder it is to outperform mature sectors of the market. And think about the impact events such as 2008 had on portfolios with a short-term focus.

A multi-asset solution can help. Multi-asset solutions may provide investors with more opportunities, greater flexibility and enhanced diversification potential. Russell Investments' multi-asset approach carefully examines every component of an investment strategy – with a total-portfolio perspective. Because success requires a willingness – and ability – to use every asset class and every investment strategy in its design to achieve investors’ real goals. Of course, diversification and multi-asset investing do not assure a profit or protect against loss.

Any opinion expressed is that of Russell Investments, is not a statement of fact, is subject to change and does not constitute investment advice.

The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested.
