--- The Geographic Exposure Index Series by Russell Investments provides
client exposure to emerging markets. ---
In response to increasingly
integrated global markets, the series includes four new indexes developed from
existing Russell Global Indexes, and employs Russell's first application of its
new geographic exposure concept. The series follows a transparent and
rules-based methodology to identify companies with exposure to emerging
markets, and then adjusts the weight for each company within the index to
reflect the level of the exposure.
Initially, the series consists of
four Russell global indexes:
- Russell 1000 Emerging Markets GeoExposure Index
- Russell Developed Large Cap Emerging Markets
- Russell Developed Europe Large Cap Emerging Markets
- Russell Developed Ex-North America Large Cap Emerging
Markets GeoExposure Index
Russell partnered with data
classification firm Revere Data LLC to capture geographic revenue information
that aims to reveal subtle differences among companies in similar industries.
The indexing methodology considers both percentage and absolute revenue in
determining a company’s geographic exposure.
