Rydex Investments launched six new exchange-traded funds based on S&P/Citigroup Pure Style Indices.  The stocks which make up the S&P are included based on their market capitalization.  The pure style or equal weighted approach allows more exposure of mid and small cap companies, as stocks are chosen based on a growth or value score, not on its market cap. 

The six new ETFs are:

  1. S&P 500 Pure Value (RPV)
  2. S&P 500 Pure Growth (RPG)
  3. S&P MidCap 400 Pure Value (RFV)
  4. S&P MidCap 400 Pure Growth (RFG)
  5. S&P SmallCap 600 Pure Value (RZV)
  6. S&P SmallCap Pure Growth (RZG)
