The Russell Global Index measures the performance of the global equity market based on all investable equity securities. The index includes approximately 10,000 securities in 63 countries and covers 98% of the investable global market. All securities in the Russell Global Index are classified according to size, region, country, and sector, as a result the Index can be segmented into more than 300 distinct benchmarks.

The Russell Global Index is constructed to provide a comprehensive and unbiased barometer for the global segment and is completely reconstituted annually to ensure new and growing equities are reflected.

Brief background[edit]
