Russell Small Cap Completeness Index

The Russell Small Cap Completeness® Index is a float-adjusted, market capitalization index which measures the performance of the Russell 3000® Index companies excluding S&P 500® constituents. The Index is constructed to provide a comprehensive and unbiased barometer of the extended broad market beyond the S&P 500 exposure. The Index is completely reconstituted annually.

Important Risk Information

Risk associated with equity investing include stock values which may fluctuate in response to the activities of individual  companies and general market and economic conditions.

Investments in small-sized, mid-sized and micro-cap companies may involve greater risks than in those of larger, better known companies.

Passively managed funds invest by sampling the index, holding a range of securities that, in the aggregate, approximates the full Index in terms of key risk factors and other characteristics. This may cause the fund to experience tracking errors relative to performance of the index.

These investments may have difficulty in liquidating an investment position without taking a significant discount from current market value, which can be a significant problem with certain lightly traded securities.

Derivative investments may involve risks such as potential illiquidity of the markets and additional risk of loss of principal.
