Wilshire Style Indexes

Wilshire’s Style Indexes are benchmarks used to evaluate the performance of active managers. Originally called the Quantum Style Indexes, they were created in 1996 by separating the Wilshire 5000 into four capitalization groups (Large, Small, Mid and Micro), and then dividing the Large, Small and Mid-cap issues by capitalization equally into growth and value indexes. Growth and value are defined by looking at two factors: price-to-book ratio and projected price-to-earnings ratio. The Indexes’ purpose is to help fund sponsors measure the performance of managers relative to their respective investment management style.
