Russell Expands Number of Benchmarks Available Online

Russell Investments has expanded the availability of real-time index data on to include, for the first time, eight global benchmarks.

The live data feed allows investors to keep close watch on eight global market segments: large cap, small cap, ex-U.S. large cap, ex-U.S. small cap, as well as the value and growth style indexes reflecting the ex-U.S. small-cap and large-cap segments, according to a Russell press release. Total returns charts for these indexes are available here, and they offer one-week, one-month and one-year pictures of each segment, along with the day’s and year-to-date’s high and low points.

Real-time data also is available for seven leading U.S. benchmarks: The broad-market Russell 3000 Index, large-cap Russell 1000 Index, Russell 1000 Growth Index, Russell 1000 Value Index, small-cap Russell 2000 Index, Russell 2000 Growth Index, and Russell 2000 Value Index.

The live data feed eventually will include additional global indexes, the announcement said.
