Business Wire IndiaWNS (Holdings) Limited (NYSE: WNS), a leading provider of global digital-led Business Process Management (BPM) solutions, today announced its inclusion in the Russell 2000® Index as part of the annual reconstitution of the Russell stock indexes. This reconstitution became effective after the US equities markets opened on July 1, 2024.
 
The annual reconstitution of the Russell US indexes captures the 4,000 largest US stocks as of April 30, ranking them by total market capitalization. Membership in the Russell 3000® Index, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in the large-cap Russell 1000® Index or small-cap Russell 2000® Index as well as the appropriate growth and value style indexes. FTSE Russell determines membership for its Russell indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings, and style attributes.
 
“WNS’ addition to the Russell 2000® highlights the company’s solid growth profile and the ongoing transformation of our business. We anticipate that the addition to the Russell 2000® will expand our access to capital, enhance company visibility, and improve share price stability,” said Keshav R. Murugesh, Group CEO, WNS.
 
Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. According to data as of the end of December 2023, about $10.5 trillion in assets are benchmarked against the Russell US indexes, which belong to FTSE Russell, a prominent global index provider.
 
“Russell indexes–now in their 40th year–continue to evolve to reflect the dynamic US economy. Annual rebalancing plays a vital role in establishing accurate benchmarks, ensuring they correctly mirror their designated market segments and remain unbiased in terms of size and style,” said Fiona Bassett, CEO of FTSE Russell, an LSEG Business.
