List of Russell 2000 ETFs Listed on U.S. Exchanges

The Russell 2000 is one of the two most followed U.S. indices that track small-cap stocks (the SP 600 is the other) and contains 2000 of the smallest companies in the Russell 3000. Because of its prominence, plus the popularity of small-cap companies amongst many investors, there have been several ETFs created that use the Russell 2000 as the benchmark index. These ETFs are very basic (and popular) types of ETFs and include:

  • ETFs that directly mirror the performance of the Russell 2000 (IWM, TWKO, VTWO). The iShares ETF (IWM) is the most traded/liquid Russell 2000 ETF on this list.
  • Equal weight ETFs which give each stock equal representation.
  • ETFs that select stocks in the Russell 2000 that demonstrate growth or value characteristics.
  • All of the usual levels of leveraged and short ETFs
