The FTSE-BOCHK Offshore RMB Bond Index Series measures the performance of RMB-denominated bonds issued and settled outside the People’s Republic of China. The series is designed to provide an international industry standard benchmark and to offer market participants exposure to RMB-denominated bonds. The indexes are reviewed on a monthly basis. At the review bonds may be removed or added to the indices. A total return version of all the indexes is also available. The total return index takes into account the price changes, interest accrued and coupon payments of each bond. The full amount of coupon receipts and interim cash flows of each bond are treated as cash, earning zero interest intra-month, and will be re-invested in the index at the monthly review.
