New Managers Added to Russell Investments' Global Equity Portfolios



    TORONTO, Jan. 28 /CNW/ - Russell Investments Canada Limited ("Russell")
is pleased to announce the appointment of Harris Associates, L.P. and McKinley
Capital Management in the Russell Global Equity Fund ("the Fund") and Russell
Global Equity Pool ("the Pool").
    Coincident with these additions, Altrinsic Global Advisors, LLC will no
longer be a manager in these portfolios.
    We view these manager changes as a structural enhancement to the manager
line-ups in the Fund and the Pool. Going forward, Russell believes this puts
the Global Equity portfolios in a better position to achieve performance
objectives.
