Maximize the performance of assets in transition by reducing unnecessary cost and risk.

Transition management

Organizations invest tremendous effort in setting asset allocation policy, designing asset class structure, and researching and selecting investment managers. However, even the most innovative investment ideas can fail to meet expectations if they are implemented poorly.

A well-planned transition strategy and the right resources can help you to:

  • Minimize unnecessary costs
  • Mitigate unrewarded risk
  • Reduce administrative workload
  • Eliminate performance holidays and maintain accountability

Why Russell Investments for transition management?


Using quantitative asset management disciplines, we focus on market exposure, portfolio structure and trading efficiency to the short, yet critical, period of portfolio restructuring.


Our unique approach encourages transparency, aligns interests and maximizes risk-adjusted performance over short or long periods of change.


The experience and expertise to help clients manage their risks and maintain the value of investments through periods of portfolio restructuring.


Our implementation platform traded over $2.5 trillion and transitioned over US$114 billion in global equity and fixed income portfolios in 2018.

Delivering unparalleled transition management benefits

As an investment manager, we provide genuine fiduciary oversight that fully aligns with our client's needs. Monitoring and governance of the process ensures full accountability to our clients.
As a pure agent, our approach provides independence – there is no association with a proprietary book.  As such, there are no undisclosed sources of revenue - we fully disclose all our fees. Always. We seek the best solution on your behalf with fewer conflicts of interest than other business models.
Our multi-venue trading provides access to both buy and sell side liquidity as well as the ability to seek the best real-time, global execution. We excel at global restructures across asset classes and can bring that experience to bear for even simple events.
Short-term transition projects require significant resources. As the project and risk manager, we operate as an extension of your staff, with decades of experience and ample resources to manage your event to a successful outcome.

With a dedicated portfolio manager to guide you through this complicated and risky period of change, you get accountability and daily interaction from your key point of contact.
Robust reporting and communication including customized daily transition updates, post-transition reporting, transaction reporting and attribution coupled with all necessary regulatory and board reporting.
