The top ten holdings list excludes shares of the investment vehicles in which the Fund invests its cash. The % of Portfolio value is subject to change.

Sector allocations and credit quality exposures may not equal 100 percent as a result of the fund's use of certain financial instruments such as futures, forwards, options, swaps and when issued transactions or forward commitments. Managers utilize these instruments as a substitute for holding securities directly, for hedging purposes, to take a net short position in certain markets or to adjust the interest rate sensitivity and duration of the portfolio. In the event short positions are created, they may be reflected as negative weightings in sector allocations and credit quality exposures.

ϴ Due to rounding totals may not equal 100%.

 

ƩThe sum of the debt instrument quality ratings is based upon the Barclays index methodology, which reflects the ratings of S&P and Moody's such that if both S&P and Moody's rate an instrument, the lower of the two ratings is used, and if only one rates the instrument, that rating is used. If the debt instrument has not been rated by any of these two ratings agencies, the security is classified as "Unrated."

**Country of Risk is determined by Russell Investments and is intended to represent the country specific risk of the issuers in which the Fund invests.This determination may be based upon several factors, including the country of an issuer's incorporation, where an issuer's revenues are generated and where an issuer's production and/or employees are located.

§ Currency exposure represents the percentage of the Fund's net asset value denominated in each respective currency. Positive values represent net long positions and negative values represent net short positions.

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.
