Index Methodology Update – 4 November 2016
IHS Markit, the index provider, announced that as part of the 2016 Annual Index Review, the methodology to calculate the annual weights for the 8 ABF markets in the iBoxx ABF Pan-Asia index has been amended. Under the new rules, the methodology allocates a smaller baseline weight to those markets that are significantly smaller relative to the others. The new weights have been effective from 31 October 2016 and would be implemented in six equal monthly steps. For further information, please visit IHS Markit’s website www.markit.com.
