Product Summary

The Markit TABX.HE indices were constructed using the underlying names of the BBB and BBB- Markit ABX.HE Indices. Each set combines the 07-1 and 06-2 reference obligations.

Markit TABX.HE indices are designed to provide investors with the ability to gain or hedge their exposure on the underlying names to specific tranches of varying levels of risk within the portfolio structures. The indices account for writedowns, principal shortfalls, and their respective reimbursements.

    • Familiar Constituent Set

      Each TABX.HE index is exposed to two series of the ABX.HE index (40 bonds instead of 20)
