About this talk

Russell US reconstitution & US equity valuations - iShares and FTSE Russell discuss the rising tide of the recovery Every year in June, all eyes are on the Russell US Indexes reconstitution. Not only in the interest of rebalancing assets that track them, but also for the story it tells about the preceding year in US equity markets. And while the 2020 reconstitution narrative was largely about divergent markets where small caps got smaller and large caps got bigger, the 2021 story is about widespread market recovery across all size segments. Rising tide of the recovery lifted all boats - In 2021, the breakpoint between the Russell large cap and small cap size segments climbed to its highest value ever, bouncing back from the slight dip it took in 2020 to reach $5.2 billion. Perhaps the most evident reason behind the breakpoint increase is strong US equity market performance and the recovery after the onset of the pandemic roiled markets in March 2020. So how stretched are US equity valuations? Our panel of experts from BlackRock/iShares and FTSE Russell will discuss valuation levels, growth/value tilts and current market opportunities. *** This webcast is for financial professionals based in the US or sophisticated market participants interested in ETF education. ***
