Each June, the Russell US index family is recalibrated to accurately reflect the current state of the US equity market.

Companies are also re-evaluated to determine where they rank along the investment styles spectrum.

Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. The Russell 2000 Index measures the performance of the small-cap segment of U.S. equity markets and is a subset of the Russell 2500 and 3000 indexes.
