Markit plans new European CMBS index

Markit Group has unveiled proposals for a new European commercial mortgage-backed securities index. The European CMBS Index is intended to reflect the US ABX and CMBX indices launched early last year, and was developed in partnership with Barclays Capital, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley and UBS. The index will be based on 20 single-name credit default swaps referencing eligible European CMBS bonds and will roll on a semiannual basis.
