Russell Indexes – Setting the style standard

David Koenig, CFA

Russell created the industry's first style indexes to provide investors with accurate benchmarks for measuring the growth and value equity market segments. With over $3.5 trillion in assets and approximately 98% of institutional style-oriented products benchmarked to the Russell style indexes, this ground-breaking innovation has now become the industry standard and has paved the way for the creation of more style- specific benchmarks.
