Important truths to remember about market volatility

At Russell Investments, we help investors manage downside risk in three ways: by diversifying sources of returns, by using a robust dynamic asset allocation process to guide tactical positioning, and by seeking effective implementation capabilities. We have been anticipating a low-return, high-volatility environment for the last 2-3 years. Accordingly, we have been dynamically adjusting our portfolio positioning to manage downside risk.

What is risk management?

When it comes to investing, risk management is the active mitigation of uncertainty that surrounds all investment opportunities. Investing is inherently risky. At Russell Investments, we do not seek to avoid risk, but rather work to ensure that the right risks are taken, with the highest likelihood of compensation. We work to ensure exposure to uncompensated risk is minimized.
