Russell Launches Global 3000 Index Series

March 17, 2011 ( - Russell Investments announced the launch of the new Russell Global 3000 Index series of 18 indexes — all sub-components of the Russell Global Index.

According to the announcement, the new series uses the same global-relative methodology as the Russell Global Index. It also provides investors with exposure to the Russell Global investable universe through more liquid equity indexes with enhanced investability.  

The new series is constructed with transparent rules and reconstituted annually to accurately reflect changes in global equity markets.
