Voya Russell Small Cap Index offers a diversified, low-turnover portfolio that is representative of the U.S. small-cap market. However, indexing this illiquid and volatile space is inherently tricky, and the fund’s index does little to mitigate turnover and the accompanying costs among its smallest holdings. Owing to its relatively competitive fee, we have upgraded the Morningstar Analyst Rating for the fund’s P2 share class to Bronze from Neutral; its remaining share classes maintain their Neutral and Negative ratings.
