Cornerstone OnDemand Added to Russell Global Index
Learning and talent management software provider Cornerstone OnDemand announces that the company has been added to the Russell Global Index.
- (1888PressRelease) July 08, 2011 - SANTA MONICA, Calif. - Membership in the Russell Global Index, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in the appropriate large-cap, small-cap and all-cap indexes, as well as the applicable style, sector and country indexes. Russell determines membership for its equity indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.
Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for both passive and active investment strategies. An industry-leading US$3.9 trillion in institutional assets currently are benchmarked to them.
The Russell Global Index, which captures 98 percent of investable securities globally, is reconstituted annually, and all sub-indexes are recalibrated simultaneously to accurately measure current market realities for each market segment. These investment tools originated from Russell's multi-manager investment business in the early 1980s when the company saw the need for a more objective, market-driven set of benchmarks in order to evaluate outside investment managers.
