Barcap adds Japanese inflation-linked bonds to global index

JGBi will have an expected weight of 1.2% in the UK bank’s global index. The market capitalisation of the global government inflation-linked now stands at more than $700 billion, having grown by 46% in 2004.

“Japan expects to issue ¥2 trillion in four auctions next year, although this could be larger should demand develop quickly,” said Alan James, Barclays Capital’s global inflation-linked strategist in London.

The global index is one of Barclays Capital’s group of inflation-linked bond indexes, and currently includes issues from the US, UK, France, Italy, Sweden, Canada and Australia. Germany will be added to its suite when it issues inflation-linked bonds later this year.
