We have the right capabilities to help you achieve your goals
With 50 years of advisory experience and 40 years as an OCIO provider, we have worked with some of the world's most sophisticated investors to help achieve successful, long-term outcomes. Our industry-recognized manager research capabilities and capital markets insights are part and parcel of the solutions we deliver.
Flexibility in levels of discretionEvery client is different: different objectives, different organizational structures, different needs. With 40 years of experience designing investment solutions for clients around the globe, we are experts at designing individualized programs that also leverage our scale and buying power.
We seek out the best investment strategies for you–whether they are internal to us or exist elsewhere–and combine them into a multi-asset portfolio designed to deliver the results you need.
You deserve industry-leading research and award-winning implementation services. Thought leadership and access to innovative, results-oriented strategies like transition management, tactical portfolio tilting, and strategic overlays, to name a few. Multi-billion dollar plans buy these services from us a la carte, but they’re included by default within our OCIO service.
Our solutions most often include administrative features such as trust & custody, audit support, cash management, rebalancing, fiduciary and regulatory compliance, and many other aspects of daily account administration–another important way in which our experienced team can act as an extension of your staff.
We incorporate a true multi-asset investment approach designed for outcomes
In simplest terms, multi-asset investing is the process of gaining exposure to a globally diverse mix of asset classes or styles. Multi-asset may combine traditional securities, like equities and fixed income, with alternative approaches, like real estate or commodities. We believe TRUE multi-asset investing requires three characteristics:
- An asset allocation that focuses on specific investor outcomes.
- Precise exposures, crafted from a wide and deep toolkit of asset classes, factors, styles and managers.
- Dynamic portfolio management.
We believe this approach to managing an investment portfolio fundamentally changes what is possible in terms of return potential, volatility management, risk mitigation, and investment outcomes.
What are you trying to achieve?
Whether you're investing on behalf of plan participants, an endowment or foundation, or a hospital or healthcare system, we believe the best way to reach your desired outcomes is with a multi-asset approach.
Cost efficiencies and scale benefits
Size matters when negotiating fees. Our clients benefit from the access and pricing we negotiate with asset managers.
We will serve as a co-fiduciary for your plan – that’s a whole different order of accountability than what’s typically offered by a consultant.
Solving your resource problem
Our dedicated and experienced client service team will serve as an extension of your staff so that you and your board can focus on strategy, oversight, and your core business.
Managing a portfolio via quarterly committee meetings lets too much opportunity pass by. We can manage your portfolio on a daily basis without asking you to sacrifice transparency or oversight.
Focus on performance and outcomes
Performance is good, but only if it moves you toward your desired outcome. We can help you manage to (and track your progress toward) the goals that matter most to you.
Total portfolio risk management
Understanding risk is more important than ever, particularly in the context of market volatility.
Built around you
Our approach is deliberately flexible. Every solution is built around your unique needs, with the flexibility to evolve with you as your needs change.
Global investment approach
Our global investment approach–developed over the last 50 years–efficiently focuses a diversified selection of many of the Russell Investments' researched "best-in-class" money managers and strategies on your goals.
Our specialists bring an intimate understanding of the issues faced by organizations like yours, drawing from years of first-hand, local experience and our broader practices.
