Society Pass Incorporated (SoPa), the Vietnam-based data-driven loyalty platform, announced Tuesday that the company has been added to the Russell 2000 Index, effective at the open of U.S. markets on December 20, 2021 and according to the preliminary list of initial public offering (IPO) additions to the Russell indexes.

“Building on the momentum of our successful IPO, the inclusion of Society Pass to these highly regarded and widely used indexes will increase the visibility of our stock to the wider global investment community and attract new classes of investors to our register,” SoPA Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dennis Nguyen said in a statement.

Membership in the Russell 2000 Index, which remains in place until the next reconstitution, is based on membership in the broad-market Russell 3000 Index. The Russell US Indexes are commonly used as performance benchmarks, or as the basis for index-linked products including index tracking funds, derivatives, and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs).
