SOLANA BEACH, Calif., June 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ClearPoint Neuro, Inc. (Nasdaq: CLPT) (the “Company”), a global therapy-enabling platform company providing navigation and delivery to the brain, is set to join the broad-market Russell 3000 Index at the conclusion of the 2021 Russell indexes annual reconstitution, effective after the US market opens on June 28, according to a preliminary list of additions posted June 4.
The annual Russell indexes reconstitution captures the 4,000 largest US stocks as of May 7, ranking them by total market capitalization.

FTSE Russell determines membership for its Russell indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings, and style attributes.
“We are pleased to be included in the Russell 3000,” stated Danilo D’Alessandro, CFO of ClearPoint Neuro. “This should further our strategy of continuing to build our institutional shareholder base.”
Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. Approximately $10.6 trillion in assets are benchmarked against Russell’s US indexes. Russell indexes are part of FTSE Russell, a leading global index provider.
