Your goals matter. So how do you reach them?

At Russell Investments, we stand with you, whether you’re an institutional investor, a financial adviser, or an individual guided by an advisor’s personalized advice.

We believe you achieve your highest likelihood of reaching your goals when you take a total-portfolio approach to investing. And we think there’s a definable list of capabilities required to manage total portfolios successfully:

Strategic asset allocation is the primary ingredient in portfolio construction.

Whether you're an individual saving for retirement or an institutional investor trying to improve the funded ratio of your corporate plan, we think strategic asset allocation is the factor that will have the most impact on reaching those goals.

Our commitment to strategic asset allocation.
Two years in a row we've been ranked as the number one consultant in the United States, delivering strategic asset allocation advice to the most demanding investors.¹

Learn more about portfolio construction built on strategic asset allocation.

Capital markets insights help us decide on the specific factor exposures within those allocations.

Do we want to overweight small cap? Do we want to underweight growth? Positions on these decisions requires deep insights into complex capital markets.

Our leadership in capital markets insights.
72% of the most sophisticated investors in the U.S. benchmark to our indexes.² And we’re ranked as the number one consultant in the U.S.³

Accessing precise exposures requires both active and passive investing expertise.

On the active management side, we do that through our manager research. By finding what we consider the best active manager, we hope that manager’s stock picking ability will add returns above the benchmark. But passive investing must also be part of the solution. We’ve built one of the most recognizable indexes in the world. We understand how to get passive exposures AND we source active management. We consider that a requirement for managing total portfolios.

We’re leaders in active management.
When it comes to picking managers, we are consistently ranked as a top manager research firm in the world.4

Investors come to us for passive exposures
$150 billion is invested in Russell-based ETFs. And 72% of the most sophisticated investors in the U.S. benchmark to our indexes.5

We think the best way to implement all of this is with own implementation capability.

So we built our in-house brokerage desk. This allows us to cost-effectively modify the shape of the portfolio—so that our ideas and judgments remain imbedded.

We are the largest transition management trading business in the world and consistently receive top marks.6

When it all comes together, we feel confident that we’re the world’s leading provider of multi-asset solutions, because we have the four distinct capabilities that we believe are required to run money. And we have a purpose that has never changed—and never will: Improving financial security for people.
