indexes as well as the applicable style, sector and country indexes. Russell 
determines membership for its equity indexes primarily by objective, 
market-capitalization rankings and style attributes. 
Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional 
investors for index funds and as benchmarks for both passive and active 
investment strategies. Approximately $4.1 trillion in assets are currently 
benchmarked to Russell indexes. 
Russell launched the Russell Global Index in 2007, leveraging the popular 
methodology from its U.S. indexes. The broad-market Russell 3000(®) Index 
serves as the U.S. component to the Russell Global Index.
