The Russell Pure Style Indexes provide concentrated exposure to stocks that exhibit strong growth or value signals. Building upon Russell's traditional, cap-weighted style methodology, the Pure Style methodology is style-weighted, and effectively narrows the universe delivering a more tailored, 'pure' exposure to only those stocks considered fully value or growth.
The Pure Style indexes were designed as additional tools for investors employing size and style investing strategies. Whether the desired outcomes are to strike a balance between growth and value segments with large-, mid- and small-cap exposures or to dynamically and tactically tilt, these indexes provide sharp, focused, non-overlapping exposures to growth and value.
