Multifactor U.S.Equity Fund
The U.S. Large Cap Equity Fund reorganized (“merged”) into the Multifactor U.S. Equity Fund on April 27, 2018.
Effective September 15th, 2017, Class T Shares were redesignated as Class M Shares.
Effective September 15, 2017, the Select U.S. Equity Fund was renamed the Multifactor U.S. Equity Fund.
- The Fund uses a dynamic multifactor investing approach designed to seek excess returns and risk management in a cost-effective way.
- Invests principally in common stocks of large and medium capitalization U.S. companies, but may also invest in small capitalization U.S. companies.
- 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.

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.
