TINTON FALLS, N.J., June 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Two River Bancorp (Nasdaq:TRCB) (the "Company"), the parent company of Two River Community Bank ("the Bank"), today announced that it has joined the Russell 3000® and Russell 2000® Indexes as part of Russell Investments reconstitution of its comprehensive set of US Equity Indexes. The final 2017 reconstitution of the Russell Indexes took place after the market close on Friday, June 23, 2017. 

The annual Russell Indexes reconstitution captures the 4,000 largest US stocks at the close of the market on May 12, 2017, ranking them by total market capitalization. Membership in the US all-cap Russell 3000® Index, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in either the large-cap Russell 1000® Index or the small-cap Russell 2000® Index, as well as the appropriate growth and value style indexes. Russell Indexes are part of FTSE Russell, a leading global index provider.  FTSE Russell determines membership for its Russell Indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.

William D. Moss, President and CEO of the Company, stated, "We are very pleased to have earned our inclusion in the Russell Indexes. Our Company has pursued a disciplined strategy which has resulted in steady growth and increased profitability. We view our inclusion in the Russell as recognition of our efforts to date and a positive endorsement of our capabilities."

Russell Indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. Approximately $8.5 trillion in assets are benchmarked against Russell's US Indexes.
