Russell Investments has added four additional investment discipline indexes to its series, all of which concentrate on small-cap securities.
They are: the Russell U.S. Small Cap Aggressive Growth, Russell U.S. Small Cap Consistent Growth, Russell U.S. Small Cap Low P/E and Russell U.S. Small Cap Contrarian indexes. They complement the six U.S. large-cap investment discipline indexes that Russell introduced in May.
The Russell investment discipline indexes take indexing to another level by selecting components of the Russell U.S. indexes according to various investment styles.
“We are very excited to expand our line of investment discipline indexes into the small-cap arena, where we believe our clients can particularly benefit from high-quality tools,” said Rolf Agather, managing director of index research and innovation at Russell. “These indexes draw from Russell’s strength in researching professional money managers and our pioneering history in indexing.”
