    • Russell Investments is planning its annual index realignment today, affecting more than $5T in assets. Credit Suisse estimates $42B will trade as a result of the adjustment, resulting in one of the biggest trading days of the year in terms of dollar volume.
    • Asset managers and investors will have to realign their portfolios to match up with the new shifts in indices such as the Russell 2000 and the Russell 3000.
    • Due to the expected surge in volume, exchanges are now busy preparing for possible technical issues occurring over the course of the day.
    • Yesterday, the London Stock Exchange said it will acquire Frank Russell for $2.7B.
