INTEGRITY

We reflect what matters most to you and your investment goals through a robust, integrated process.

Responsible investing and ESG 

Responsible investing is intelligent investing

Whether you're driven by personal or stakeholder values, aim to mitigate risk or need to comply with regulation - our approach to responsible investing integrates what matters most to you.

Four beliefs

A sound awareness of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and a robust process are integral for responsible investing. In our view, they can help deliver strong investment returns and meet objectives over the long-term.

BELIEF

ESG factors

ESG factors impact security prices. These factors can vary by company, industry, and region and their importance can vary through time.

BELIEF

A deep understanding

A deep understanding of how ESG factors impact security prices is value-adding to a skilful investment process.

Embedding ESG

Embedding ESG considerations into a firm's culture and processes improves the likelihood of prolonged and successful investing.

Active ownership

Active ownership of securities is an effective tool for improving investment outcomes.

 

We believe responsible investing and performance can be complementary.

Our responsible investing approach aims to capture the right exposure without jeopardising return.

Our approach

Responsible investing and ESG

Putting beliefs into practice

We incorporate responsible investing in our investment manager evaluation process, our portfolio management, our advisory services, and through implementing proprietary solutions to meet client needs.

Portfolio management

Managers and products are evaluated, ranked and surveyed one by one. As such, our portfolio managers select managers and products with full knowledge of their ESG metrics and how it is implemented.

ESG research and metrics

We research and report active manager ranks and metrics and have developed proprietary metrics for our direct investing capabilities.

Culture and processes

Sustainable practices are incorporated into our own business just as we ask our managers to do.

Active
ownership

We believe voting is a part of a share’s value-creation process. We are active owners of all our holdings and focus on specific ESG actions within our engagement activities.

Climate Change Policy

Russell Investments' policy is to research, measure, report and consider climate change risk and opportunities as integral parts of our investing practice, our active ownership, and our business operations. Our measures, reported metrics, and consideration of climate risk and opportunities are integrated into our sub-advisor research and selection, portfolio management, advice, proxy voting and shareholder engagement, and day-to-day business.

Any opinion expressed, 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. Your clients may not get back the amount originally invested.
