Why choose our convertible bond indices?
Convertible indices offer an independent and transparent definition of the convertible bond asset class over time.
A large number of index combinations are available, such as global and regional coverage; unhedged or hedged currencies; and carve-outs, featuring only “balanced” or investment grade issues. Custom index development and reporting is also possible.
The indices are administered and calculated in the spirit of the International Organization of Securities Commissions principles.
The FTSE Convertible Indices are administered by Refinitiv Benchmark Services Limited (RBSL), authorised as a Benchmark Administrator under UK BMR.
