Russell Investments Launches Sustainable Managed Portfolios

Russell Investments has announced its Sustainable Managed Portfolios, offering Australian investors exposure to primarily sustainable managers and strategies within a managed portfolio structure.

Developed in response to investor demand, the sustainably managed portfolios would expand Russell Investments’ existing range of aggressively managed multi-asset portfolios. It would also offer financial advisors the opportunity to align their clients’ investments with their environmental, social and governance (ESG) values.

Neil Rogan, Head of Advisory and Intermediary Solutions for Russell Investments in Australia, said: “Russell Investments’ sustainable managed portfolios are an important development for financial advisors.

“Now they can invest their clients in portfolios that leave a lasting positive impact on the world, while harnessing the depth of institutional research and access to managers that Russell Investments makes possible for retail and wholesale investors.”

“By using a multi-asset managed portfolio structure, we are able to satisfy a range of investor risk appetites, while saving advisors time by ensuring they no longer need to provide a statement or notice record when changes are made to the portfolio.”

Russell Investments’ sustainably managed portfolios were available in balanced and growth options, and accessible across multiple investment platforms.
