    SFTP / FTP File new enhanced format for iBoxx EUR High Yield

    IHS Markit is pleased to introduce a new, enhanced file format for the iBoxx EUR High Yield files that are published on our SFTP / FTP server.

    Inclusion of SONIA-linked FRNs in the Markit iBoxx GBP Liquid IG Ultrashort Index

    IHS Markit will be including floating rate notes linked to the Sterling Overnight Index Average (SONIA) in the Markit iBoxx GBP Liquid Investment Grade Ultrashort index with effect from 30 June 2019. This decision follows a comprehensive consultation with users of the index and IHS Markit Benchmark Administration Limited.

    The Index is designed to provide a balanced representation of the Sterling (GBP) denominated investment grade ultrashort credit market and is comprised of both fixed coupon bonds and floating rate notes. Recent developments have shown that Libor will be gradually phased out and to ensure that the index reflects a growing issuance of floating rate notes linked to SONIA this decision was made.

    The updated index guide can be found on our website here. Click Rules Liquid on the left side of the screen and then choose Europe > GBP > Markit iBoxx GBP Liquid Investment Grade Ultrashort.
