Prior to the end of each quarter, Russell polls a sample of U.S. seniorlevel investment decision makers at equity investment management and fixed-income investment management firms to collect top-line opinions about their outlook on which markets, sectors and asset classes to watch, and trends on the horizon that could impact investment strategy. The result of this survey is Russell's Investment Manager Outlook that is published during the final week of each quarter.

Growth investments focus on stocks of companies whose earnings/profitability are accelerating
in the short term or have grown consistently over the long term. Such investments may provide
minimal dividends which could otherwise cushion stock prices in a market decline. Stock value
may rise and fall significantly base, in part, on investors' perceptions of the company, rather than
on fundamental analysis of the stocks. Investors should carefully consider the additional risks
involved in growth investments.
Specific sector investing such as real estate can be subject to different and greater risks than more diversified investments. Declines in the value of real estate, economic conditions, property taxes and tax laws and interest rates all present potential risks to real estate investments.
