“We have demonstrated strong momentum since becoming a public company, and Porch’s addition to the Russell 2000 is a reflection of our progress,” said Matt Ehrlichman, founder, chairman and CEO of Porch Group. “We welcome the enhanced visibility as we continue to execute on our strategy to drive sustained growth and capitalize on the massive opportunity ahead.”
Annual Russell indexes reconstitution captures the 4,000 largest US stocks as of May 7, ranking them by total market capitalization.
