Nasdaq OMX launches government relief index

Index provider Nasdaq OMX has launched the Government Relief Index, which is designed to track the performance of US-listed securities that are participating in US government sponsored relief programmes such as the Troubled Asset Relief Program (Tarp) or other direct government investments. The index can be used as an underlying for ETFs and structured products.

The index consists of companies across multiple industry groups that have received a direct investment from the US government greater than US$1 billion. Major stocks included in the index include Bank of America, Citi, General Motors, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley.

Nasdaq is also working on indexes that will include all firms that received government investment, both in the US and globally.
