Investment strategy

  • The Fund invests principally in equity securities, including common stocks and preferred stocks, issued by companies economically tied to non-U.S. countries, including emerging market countries, and in depositary receipts.
  • The Fund seeks to realize capital growth while considering shareholder tax consequences arising from the Fund's portfolio management activities. The Fund typically buys stocks with the intention of holding them long enough for long-term capital gains tax treatment.
  • The Fund's tax-managed equity investment strategy may provide a lower return before consideration of federal income tax consequences than other mutual funds that are not tax-managed.

Fund highlights

  • Investing principally in large and medium capitalization companies, but may also invest in small capitalization companies.
  • Selecting and holding portfolio securities based on its assessment of their potential for long-term total returns.
  • Seeking to realize capital growth while considering shareholder tax consequences arising from the Fund's portfolio management activities.
  • Russell Investments seeks to manage the impact of taxes through gain and loss harvesting, capital gain deferral, tax lot management, and minimization of wash sales where possible.

Fund objectives, risks, charges and expenses should be carefully considered before investing. A summary prospectus, if available, or a prospectus containing this and other important information can be obtained by calling 800-787-7354 or by visiting the prospectus and reports page to download one. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.

Please remember that all investments carry some level of risk, including the potential loss of principal invested. 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.

Diversification and multi-asset solutions do not assure a profit and do not protect against loss in declining markets.
