Russell Investments conducted the Financial Professional Outlook survey between September 24, 2014 and October 8, 2014. The survey was sent to a broad group of U.S. financial advisors. Having a financial relationship with Russell was not part of the criteria for being included in the survey. In total, 234 survey responses were received representing nearly 145 firms. The sample size of 234 is sufficient to provide 95% confidence that the results will be within plus or minus 6.5%. In other words, if we repeated this survey 100 times we would expect to find similar results in 95 of the 100 trials.

Please note advisors surveyed do not necessarily use Russell products.
