As the first US CLO index of its kind, CLO offers total returns and analytics based on observable pricings of a representative pool of bonds following a stated methodology, and is published daily. The index holistically captures the USD-denominated CLO market, representing over 3000 instruments at a total par value of US $236.1 billion. Its introduction allows market participants to track securitized loan market valuations, complementing last year’s debut of the J.P. Morgan Asset-Backed Securities Indices (ABS Indices).
CLO tracks floating-rate CLO securities in 2004–present vintages. Additional sub-indices are divided by ratings AAA through BB, and further divided between pre- and post-crisis vintages. CLO 2.0, or post-crisis vintages, consists of deals issued in 2010 and later. CLOIE utilizes a market-value weighted methodology and will be another member of the widely used J.P. Morgan benchmark suite.
