Markit iBoxx indices cover the Euro, Sterling, Asian, US Dollar and European high-yield bond markets, and also provides global indices, including an inflation-linked index family and emerging markets indices.

Leading investment banks supply bid and ask bond prices throughout the trading day to Markit. The prices are subjected to a rigorous series of quality controls before consolidated bid and ask prices are calculated, used for index calculation and published for every bond in the Markit bond universe, along with a range of analytical values.

Markit and our experienced partners are responsible for the marketing, administration, price consolidation and index production in accordance with publicly available rules and standards.
