SEATTLE, July 6, 2022 — Russell Investments, a global investment solutions partner, has been honored as a finalist for two asset manager awards in the 2022 WealthManagement.com Industry Awards (the “Wealthies”). The firm’s Personalized Managed Accounts (PMA) program was selected as one of three finalists in the Separate Accounts category, while Global Head of Marketing Mollie Jensen was named as one of three finalists in the Chief Marketing Officer of the Year category.
According to WealthManagement.com, a panel of independent judges made up of top names in the industry chose the finalists and will determine the eventual winners of this year’s Industry Awards, which recognize those firms and individuals who are bringing new innovations to market that make a real difference to the daily activities of financial advisors. Winners of the 2022 Industry Awards will be announced at a ceremony in New York City on Sept. 8, 2022.
Russell Investments’ Personalized Managed Accounts (PMA), a distinctive suite of solutions for financial advisors and their clients that can be customized to each investor’s unique and specific needs, was launched in 2021. PMA leverages the firm’s extensive investment manager research, selection and monitoring process, which has formed the cornerstone of advice to global institutional investors for more than 50 years. PMA also further establishes the firm’s leadership position in the managed accounts space, which according to Cerulli Associates’ US Asset Allocation Model Portfolios 2020 report, ranked as the industry’s top provider of asset allocation model portfolios based on total assets1.
