Russell Launches Alternative Pools


    Russell Investments Canada Limited has launched a global infrastructure pool and a global real estate pool for Canadian investors seeking to diversify their portfolios beyond traditional stocks and bonds. “Institutional investors have been looking to invest in global infrastructure and real estate opportunities for increased diversification and we believe retail investors would benefit from this same access,” says David Feather, president and chief executive officer, Russell Investments Canada. “In this low return and volatile market environment, investors need access to additional sources of portfolio diversification in order to improve their risk/return outcomes.” The new pools complement its existing suite of fixed income and equity solutions by offering investors the opportunity to invest in asset classes that have low correlations with traditional stocks and bonds.
