2017 Asset Management & Servicing Winners


Investment Outsourcing

Russell Investments Winner
As one of the largest OCIO providers, with a top-ranking for client satisfaction in CIO’s 2017 OCIO Vendor Ratings survey, Russell Investments remains a trailblazer in the space.

Multi-asset investing has transformed the firm’s OCIO relationships, with growth from buyers across a range of institutional channels—whether it’s DB and DC plans, healthcare systems, nonprofit organizations, or university endowments. “Our multi-asset approach delivers highly diversified, dynamically managed investment solutions designed to capture sources of return and manage downside risk in ways we hadn’t dreamed of a decade ago,” according to Eric Macy, managing director at Russell Investments.

The firm made several key hires to support its institutional business, including Michael Hall, who rejoined Russell in September as managing director after serving as West Division leader for Towers Watson Investment Services at Willis Towers Watson. Russell Investments’ firm-wide AUM grew to $289 billion as of September 30, 2017, up from $257 billion at the same time last year.
