Russell Investments has created five new global service lines: consulting and advisory services, DB/DC outsourcing, OpenWorld, retail and Russell Investment Services.

Russell Investments has created five new global service lines: consulting and advisory services, DB/DC outsourcing, OpenWorld, retail and Russell Investment Services.

The new service lines will complement existing global offerings, including multi-manager, Pantheon (private equity) and indexes.

The global service lines work with the regional business units, leveraging the firm’s global resources and enhancing Russell’s ability to deliver intellectual capital and investment products and services to any client, anywhere in the world.

‘This is an exciting new era for Russell,’ says chief executive Andrew Doman (pictured). ‘We’re confident that the extraordinary power in Russell’s nexus of businesses, when harnessed through these new global service lines, will generate opportunities for engineering innovative solutions for our clients. Our clients are demanding access to Russell’s full global capabilities and our new service lines will be responsible for delivering the very best of Russell worldwide to any client, wherever they are located.’

Johan Cras, head of Russell’s Europe, Middle East and Africa region, will assume the additional role of chairman of the global service line leadership committee.

Each of the five service lines will have a global head who is charged with identifying opportunities for growth at the intersection between business lines and geographies, developing consistent practices on a global scale and advocating innovations that can be executed within and across individual business units and geographic regions.

‘Russell is committed to securing a leadership position in each of its key business areas. The global service lines underscore this by creating a mechanism to ensure a consistent and cohesive level of excellence, while simultaneously strengthening our premier position in each business,’ says Doman. ‘Russell’s index business, which already successfully bridges all economies, markets and currencies, is a testament to the benefits that can be realised from a structure that reinforces and encourages this kind of global collaboration.’
