Russell US Index Ecosystem
The growing importance our clients place on passive investing has driven us to take a closer look at the evolution of our industry. Through careful examination of the marketplace, our attention has focused on the thriving ecosystem that surrounds the Russell US Indexes—one of our oldest and most widely used index series. To FTSE Russell, an index ecosystem is the network of products, relationships and processes that have developed to support index-based investments in their many forms. Looking at indexes in this way enables us to explore industry changes in technology, regulation and thinking to best understand their past, present and future influences on passive investing.
