Russell created the industry's first style indices in 1987 to provide investors with accurate benchmarks for measuring the growth and value equity market segments. This ground-breaking innovation has now become the industry standard and has paved the way for the creation of more style-specific benchmarks.
Russell Style Indexes are built using three highly representative growth and value characteristics. Our style indexes use one value characteristic, book-to-price ratio (B/P), and two growth characteristics, medium-term forecast earnings growth rate based on I/B/E/S two-year forecasts and sales-per-share growth rate based on five-year historical sales.
The Russell 1000 Growth and Value US ESG Indexes are alternatively-weighted US equity indexes based on the Russell US Style Indexes. The indexes are designed to meet improved index level ESG profile, while maintaining similar risk/return characteristics to the underlying universe.
