BarCap to make markets in iBoxx and Trac-x

BarCap joins ABN Amro, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein and Société Générale as market makers to the iBoxx family of products. This currently consists of three credit derivatives indexes: the iBoxx Diversified, the iBoxx 100 and the iBoxx Corporate.

iBoxx was set up by a consortium of seven banks and the Deutsche Borse, and is in competition with the JP Morgan Chase/Morgan Stanley Trac-x credit derivatives index suite.

BarCap announced its decision to join iBoxx on the same day as it said it was to make markets on the Trac-x index.
