The Thomson Reuters Fixed Income Indices have been constructed according to the EFFAS (European Federation of Financial Analysts Societies) rules for bond indices. Thomson Reuters aims to offer as transparent and flexible a set of bond indices as possible. To this end, each index contains only those bonds that follow the rules agreed by the subcommittee and all indices have been rigorously back tested. All series were originally calculated to 30th December 1988, now most markets are calculated to an earlier start date.
