    From the iShares Blog
    The annual Russell Index Reconstitution happened on June 24th, and as always it was one of the biggest market events of the year.  Why?  In addition to the huge amount of trading volume that it creates, it also represents a sizeable challenge for the index funds that seek to track the Russell indices.  In part one of our latest Blue Room Chat, Head of iShares Portfolio Management Greg Savage breaks down this year’s “Recon”, covering the notable index additions and assessing the significance of trading activity on that day.

    Tune in next week to get the scoop on what fund managers must to do manage around the Russell Reconstitution, and why investors should care.
