Indian Equity Market Got a 4.4% Boost in the Three Days Including and After the May 16 Elections Announcement and Has Gained 22% in 2014 as of May 20: Russell Indices

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/23/14 -- India outperformed all other emerging market countries within the Russell Emerging Markets Index, with a 4.4% return in the three market days from the May 16 election of Narendra Modi and the conservative Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) through May 20. India's 22.5% return year-to-date as of May 20 is among the leading country components within the Russell Emerging Markets Index.

Russell Investments senior emerging markets portfolio manager Gustavo Galindo:
"As elections have approached in India, we believe the expectation of what could be a more market friendly government has helped equity market performance, with May 16 election results igniting a rally in recent days. We believe Modi's win has been a positive for the Indian market as measured by Russell index returns, particularly because he did not have to form a coalition government. If Modi is successful in introducing proposed changes, India could potentially be poised for a period of strong returns which could bring positive sentiment to emerging markets."
