Investment strategy

  • The Fund uses a dynamic multifactor investing approach designed to seek excess returns and risk management in a cost-effective way.

  • Invests principally in equity securities, including common stocks issued by companies economically tied to or located in developed market countries, other than the U.S. The Fund may invest a portion of its assets in equity securities of companies that are economically tied to emerging market countries.

Fund highlights

  • Multiple factors: Provides access to equity factors (rules-based exposures, e.g. Value, Momentum, Quality or Low Volatility) that Russell Investments believes will outperform the broad market over the long run. Combining multiple factors in a single portfolio may help provide more consistent performance over time, especially given that when one factor is underperforming, another factor may be outperforming.
  • Thoughtful portfolio construction: Rather than simply equally weighting each factor, Russell Investments thoughtfully constructs the Fund’s strategic factor weights based on its research of each factor’s behavior under different economic regimes.
  • Dynamic active management: The Fund’s portfolio managers actively adjust individual factor weights, based on Russell Investments’ manager research insights and strategists’ capital market views on the business cycle, valuations and market sentiment. They take ownership of total portfolio exposures and manage overlap, diversification, risk levels and seek to add value by responding to evolving market opportunities and risks.

They do not typically grow at an even rate of return and may experience negative growth. As with any type of portfolio structuring, attempting to reduce risk and increase return could, at certain times, unintentionally reduce returns.
