iBoxx licenses indexes for exchange-traded funds

iShares is managed by UK asset management firm Barclays Global Investors (BGI) and iBoxx is a joint venture between ABN Amro, Barclays Capital, BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank, Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein, Morgan Stanley, UBS Warburg and Deutsche Börse. iBoxx indexes are based on real-time bond prices contributed by the consortium of investment banks.

"The iBoxx ETFs will offer institutional and retail investors a liquid, transparent and flexible investment tool, allowing them to diversify their portfolio through the purchase of a single security,” said John Demaine, director of iShares. “They will also be one of the cheapest ways to invest in bond indexes in Europe."

The complete range of BGI/iShares comprises more than 100 ETFs worldwide with assets under management of €26 billion.
