Markit launches iTraxx Europe Total Return indices
Financial information services provider Markit has announced the launch of the Markit iTraxx Europe Financial Total Return indices, which it has licensed to Deutsche Bank as the underlying basis of four exchange-traded funds.
The new indices replicate the performance of a sample portfolio that buys or sells a Markit iTraxx CDS contract and invests the remaining notional amount in money-market instruments. The indices have been designed to serve as a benchmark for institutional investors with debt positions in financial institutions.
The Markit iTraxx Europe Financial Total Return indices comprise the Europe Senior Financials 5-Year Total Return Index, Europe Subordinated Financials 5-Year Total Return Index, Europe Senior Financials 5-Year Short Total Return Index, and Europe Subordinated Financials 5-Year Short Total Return Index.
Markit has more than 1,000 employees in Europe, North America and Asia Pacific and provides services to more than 1,000 financial institutions worldwide to enable them to manage risk, improve operational efficiency and meet regulatory requirements.
