Barclays Capital builds up indexes after Lehman acquisition

Barclays Capital has rolled out the re-branded version of the Lehman Brothers index platform that it acquired as part of its takeover of the now defunct US investment bank. Barcap has confirmed that the calculation of the indexes will continue as before, as a result of limited overlap between the two banks’ index families.

The merger leaves BarCap with a considerable index offering which builds upon its existing platform that calculated around 25,000 indexes daily. The methodologies and staff behind the indexes will both be maintained. The only significant area of overlap is inflation-linked bonds.
