FTSE Eurozone Bond Index Series
The FTSE Eurozone Bond Index Series (formerly FTSE MTS Indexes) are a set of benchmarks for the European sovereign bond market. Independent total return indexes measure the performance of the largest and most widely-traded securities in the euro bond market. The pricing data underlying the FTSE Eurozone Bond Index Series is drawn from the Refinitiv Evaluated Pricing Service (REPS).
Origin and History
In January 2003 EuroMTS Ltd acquired the intellectual property rights to the well established CNO Etrix indexes. The CNO indexes were developed by the Comité de Normalisation Obligataire (French Bond Association) in 1989 to include French Sovereign debt and were subsequently evolved to include Eurozone government bonds from 1 January 1999.
The index range has been expanded to include other bond asset classes traded on the euro bond market, leveraging FTSE Russell’s robust governance framework and core principles of tradability and transparency.
On 31 March 2022, the FTSE MTS Bond Index Series was renamed the FTSE Eurozone Bond Index Series. Get more information
