Currency management

Using Russell Investments can result in a cost effective solution for a core component of your trading and risk management programs.

Currency management for institutional investors

We focus on foreign exchange (FX) trading and currency risk management. We trade FX as an agent and fiduciary to help investors achieve their best execution objectives while managing an important legal obligation. We also developed Conscious Currency™, a novel and powerful approach for managing currency risk in international portfolios.

Together or individually, these currency services are designed to lower transaction costs, minimize risk and reduce the operational burden of managing FX.

Based on our research, inattention to FX transactions can detract from investment performance because costs can range up to 30 basis points. Our FX trading service can reduce those costs often to less than 1 basis point. Discover how you can reduce your foreign exchange trading costs

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.
