Invesco Powershares Licenses Russell 1000® Equal Weight Index for New ETF

Invesco PowerShares Capital Management LLC has recently selected the Russell 1000® Equal Weight Index as the basis for a new exchange traded fund (ETF). The Russell 1000® Equal Weight Index offers a unique and practical alternative to conventional weighted indexes. Rather than assigning an equal weight to each index constituent, Russell’s sector equal weight methodology equally weights each sector within the index and then equally weights the companies within each sector. This innovative approach can provide greater potential diversification benefits than traditional equal weight indexes. Invesco PowerShares is a leading global provider of exchange-traded funds and a pioneer in the development of smart beta ETFs. The firm believes that smart beta strategies can provide investors with a valuable alternative that expands portfolio construction opportunities and offers a full suite of smart beta ETFs in various categories.
