Russell launches infrastructure and credit strategies funds

RELATED TOPICS​

Russell Investments has launched the Russell Global Infrastructure Fund and the Russell Global Credit Strategies Fund.

The two funds have been added to the Russell LifePoints Funds Target Portfolio Series and Russell Core Model Strategies.

The Russell Global Infrastructure Fund is designed to offer investors access to “real assets,” a category often used by investors looking for enhanced diversification and broader opportunities beyond traditional markets, as well as a potential hedge against inflation.

Alternatively, the Russell Global Credit Strategies Fund will offer tactical global bond opportunities, focusing on high yield bonds and emerging market debt and will enable advisers to diversify a client’s fixed income line-up.

“Russell endeavours to consistently provide advisors and their clients with thoughtful innovation in regard to building multi-strategy portfolios, which means offering new investing alternatives that are responsive to evolution and globalization in capital markets,” says Phill Rogerson, managing director, consulting services for Russell’s private client services business. “These two new funds join recently unveiled offerings, particularly our Russell Commodity Strategies Fund, which provide investors with access to new sources of return, skilled managers, as well as broader diversification.”

The Russell Global Infrastructure Fund will provide access to listed infrastructure investments not widely available in a US mutual fund. The fund will concentrate its investments in equity securities, including common stocks and preferred stocks of listed infrastructure companies located in all major global regions (including the US market). The concentration of the fund will be in developed markets with a marginal allocation to emerging markets. The fund launches with three managers: Cohen & Steers Capital Management, FAF Advisors, and Macquarie Capital Investment Management.

Through the Russell Global Credit Strategies Fund investors will gain access to various global credit strategies. As a comparatively more aggressive fixed income product, the fund enhances Russell’s fixed income line-up and provides advisers and their clients with access to global fixed income and currency. The fund’s investments will primarily be in high yield bonds and emerging market debt, but it also will consist of investment-grade securities. Underlying managers include Stone Harbor Investment Partners and Oaktree Capital Management.
