Foreign currency trading
Reduce your foreign exchange costs

Let us show you how you can reduce your foreign exchange trading costs and risk.

More choice + more oversight = better execution
Inattention to foreign exchange (FX) transactions can be costly. Our proven foreign currency trading provides a sophisticated, cost-effective alternative.

Acting on your behalf, we:
  • Work with a network of bank counterparties to execute and settle your exchange transactions efficiently and effectively to reduce trading costs.

  • Assume operational risk for all operational tasks we perform.

  • Improve governance by providing transparency and control, with a comprehensive performance report showing when the trade was executed, the market rate at the time of trading, the trade volume by currency, and the trading cost.
You can integrate our foreign currency trading services into your international investment program, whether you handle currency needs internally or delegate them to your investment managers.

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.

Implementation Services are provided by Russell Implementation Services Inc. a SEC registered investment adviser.
