Frank Russell Co. (FRC) invests in the public equity, fixed-income and real estate markets on a global basis. They invest in the growth and value stocks of large-, mid-and small-cap companies. FRC does not generally research or recommend specific portfolio securities. Rather, they research investment managers for different classes of assets and investment styles. The firm generates research and models for managing large pools of assets. In addition, they review, evaluate and utilize similar research developed by other professional organizations and by the academic community. Much of their research focuses on the process, organization, portfolio structure and performance of investment managers, using both qualitative and quantitative methods to evaluate and select investment managers.FRC exercises investment discretion over the portion of each of their funds' assets not allocated to the investment managers. They select the individual securities for that portion of each fund's assets and for each fund's cash reserves. Cash reserves are invested in short-term investments, including appropriate money market funds. In addition to investing in such short-term investments, FRC uses a hedging strategy for the fund's cash reserves to ensure a fund is fully invested by exposing these reserves to the appropriate markets by purchasing equity or fixed-income securities and/or derivatives.
