Markit iBoxx ABF Indices

The Markit iBoxx ABF Index family comprises local currency debt from China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand. This Index family is the first set of independent Asian local currency bond indices and was established together with the EMEAP group of central banks as part of the ABF2 project. The indices are used as benchmarks by asset managers and as the basis for a number of exchange-traded funds. They are a reflection of the underlying markets due to the use of multiple-contributor pricing. Sub-indices are published at market and sector level, allowing any combination of indices to suit an investment profile.
