    Extension of capping relaxation rules for the Markit iBoxx EUR FRN Investment Grade 3-7 Index

    The Markit iBoxx EUR FRN Investment Grade 3-7 Index has an issuer capping based on the ticker that limits the size of each issuer to 10% of the index. For the 30 September 2020 rebalancing the application of the index rules resulted in only 9 issuers being eligible for the index. IHS Markit decided to temporarily relax the capping rules by increasing the capping to 15% per issuer. An index consultation will be launched shortly to discuss whether to implement a permanent change to the index rules to address these situations.
