The global leader in fixed income indexing

The Bloomberg Barclays Indices continue a forty year tradition of market leadership, excellence and client service. Since 1973*, the Bloomberg Barclays Indices have been the most widely used indices for fixed income investors seeking objective, rules-based, and representative benchmarks to measure asset-class risk and returns.

Broad product coverage
Bloomberg Barclays fixed income and inflation-linked benchmarks are an integral part of the active and passive global portfolio management processes. With broad product coverage, a strong history of innovation, and objective and transparent rules, Bloomberg Barclays Indices have continually been recognized in both the US and Europe as the top index provider.

Custom benchmarks
We offer a broad and evolving suite of unbiased index products from which investors may select or customize the most appropriate benchmark for their portfolio needs. Coverage includes global fixed income, inflation-linked and swap benchmark indices. Flagship fixed-income benchmarks include the U.S., Euro, Asia-Pacific, and Global Aggregate Indices, U.S. Municipals, High-Yield and Emerging Markets.

In addition to our flagship indices, Bloomberg publishes thousands of bespoke benchmarks and actively works with index users in a consultative manner on benchmark design, methodology, back-testing, selection, and documentation of their custom indices.

Chinese bonds to be added in 2019
Beginning in April 2019, Bloomberg will add Chinese RMB-denominated government and policy bank securities to the Bloomberg Barclays Global Aggregate Index, once several planned operational enhancements are implemented by the People’s Bank of China (PBoC) and Ministry of Finance. The addition of these securities will be phased in over a 20-month period. Learn more.
