Russell Announces Preliminary Lists of U.S. and Global Index Additions for Its Annual Reconstitution and Celebrates 30 Years of Index Innovation

July 5, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Investment Weekly News -- Russell Investments has posted its official lists of companies set to join or leave the Russell Global Index, Russell 3000® Index and Russell Microcap® Index when the annual reconstitution for its U.S. equity indexes concludes on June 27. The lists of projected additions and deletions for the Russell Indexes are now available at the Russell reconstitution website.

Each June, Russell completely realigns its family of global equity indexes to reflect market changes in the past year. This year's rebalance will impact approximately $5.2 trillion in assets benchmarked to and nearly $800 billion in assets invested in institutional and retail investment products based on the Russell Indexes.

"Today the global equity markets receive their annual report card," said Ron Bundy, CEO of Russell Indexes. "Index reconstitution is a critical time for our global indexes and for our clients. Because this process includes our entire index family and impacts investors around the world, it is one of the most closely watched market events of the year. This year's reconstitution is even more significant as it has been 30 years since Russell first introduced market indexes."
