Russell Investments' seasoned specialists provide you with the expertise and resources to design and implement a customised investment framework to improve the visibility and control of the underlying exposures in your portfolio.
Our comprehensive overlay programme brings the resources and experience to help your organisation:
Improve portfolio risk/return profile
Our suite of overlay services
Cash is necessary for liquidity purposes. Our solution converts cash exposures to equity and/or bond exposures using derivatives, adjusting for total cash holdings on a daily basis. Our turnkey management service adjusts exposures and handles all downstream aspects of managing those positions.
A disciplined rebalancing plan helps to manage the drift in exposures from your Strategic Asset Allocation (SAA) over time. With daily oversight of portfolio positioning, our team manages exposures to asset classes via overlay transactions effectively solving cash drag and rebalancing policy issues simultaneously.
As funded situation improves risk tolerance often reduces. An overlay provides a cost-effective and timely implementation of the new target exposures and achieves the desired asset allocation when market opportunity arises. A common form of such a mandate is an LDI glide path which, systematically implements the asset allocation and hedge ratio changes quickly as targets are met.
Reduce the magnitude of drawdowns in portfolio value from significant market declines. Russell Investments offers risk management tools to support institutional investors in managing and maintaining their exposure to risk over the long term without bearing the full downside risk of major market corrections.
