Authored by FTSE Russell’s Global Investment Research team, this new quarterly publication provides a deep-dive into the performance and key market drivers of US equities, viewed through the lens of Russell large-cap (Russell 1000), small-cap (Russell 2000), Growth and Value indexes.

 

With defensive tilt, large-cap Value fares best in brutal Q2 sell-off.

The Russell 1000 has held its edge vs the Russell 2000 in this year’s global market meltdown, as rising risks of recession spurred a broad-based preference for larger, less volatile stocks. Value held up better than Growth, buoyed by its bigger tilts to outperforming defensive and commodity-centric stocks — and lower exposure to the carnage in tech stocks.
