HOW CAN RUSSELL INVESTMENTS iFM HELP YOU?

How can fiduciary management get you closer to achieving your investment goals?

Enhanced governance

If your board meets quarterly, you may have as little as 16 hours per YEAR to collectively make investment decisions. Best-in-class specialist fiduciary management providers will help you delegate effectively, ensuring your governance structure is robust and aligned to your needs. You can focus on the decisions that matter and maintain oversight across your entire investment programme.

Tailoring the solution to your needs

Every organisation is unique - with their own goals, circumstances, values and beliefs. That’s why the best fiduciary management providers must have the flexibility and tools to precisely align to these needs - improving the likelihood of achieving your goals, without compromising your values or beliefs.

Lower costs

Specialist fiduciary management providers can help reduce your overall costs, using their scale to negotiate more competitive rates with sub-managers and pooling your assets with other organizations. The leading fiduciary management providers can further optimize your portfolio to your fee budget - drawing on active, factor-based and passive strategies for a holistic solution.

Reduced strain on your resources

Keeping pace with continually evolving markets, regulatory obligations, multiple providers and endless administrative tasks can place a significant strain on you and your team. The right fiduciary management specialist adds additional depth to your team, providing the support you need within a level of discretion that suits you.

Timely execution

Markets change daily. That’s why annual or quarterly investment meetings are simply inadequate in today’s fast-paced environment. Leading fiduciary management providers operate globally, dynamically monitoring and managing your investments day and night.

Improved access to best opportunities

A fiduciary management specialist can help you cost effectively access the investment expertise you need. The best fiduciary management providers go well beyond in-house strategies, extensively researching and rating thousands of investment managers and opportunities to find those ideally suited to your portfolio.
