Exchange-traded funds (ETFs)
ETF products based on Russell Indexes
Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are index-based products that allow investors to buy or sell shares of entire portfolios of stock in a single security. Moreover, an ETF is a type of investment vehicle whose objective is to achieve the same return as a particular market, and is similar to an index fund in that it will primarily invest in the securities of companies that are included in a selected market index.
A variety of exchange-traded products are based on Russell's premier U.S. and global equity index families.
See the Provider column in the table below for the ETF distributors. You may find more information and purchasing capability via the fund provider and the various exchanges which sell them.
If you would like more information on ETFs and how they fit into your investment portfolio, talk to your financial advisor. If you don't have one please contact a local Russell office.
ETFs are also available through major brokerage firms. You may contact your own broker for information on the purchase of ETFs.
