Russell Investments has introduced Russell Enhanced Asset Allocation, which using forecasting models to identify unsustainable movements in the market and map out a plan to maximize returns while limiting risk and maintaining adequate liquidity. The strategy covers 11 geographic regions and 11 asset classes and produces 114 asset class pair combinations.
“As the last two years have demonstrated, the markets can move in extremes, and these extremes can represent real investment opportunities,” said Pete Gunning, global chief investment officer. The strategy provides “a high-conviction approach for investors to respond to markets that are at very likely unsustainable levels. We have offered this service to select clients and are now offering it broadly to allow clients the flexibility to shift their investment portfolio based on the insights of Russell’s global network of investment strategists and market researchers.”
The enhanced services will initially be offered only to institutional clients and then to defined contribution plans and other retail investors.
