JP Morgan Chase and Morgan Stanley launch Trac-x Japan CDS index

Trac-x Japan is expected to start trading later this month. The portfolio comprises investment-grade credits, with liquidity determined on the volume of CDS transactions.

The banks said in a joint statement that the portfolio “will be reviewed every six months to ensure that the index maintains appropriate liquidity, credit ratings, and industry diversification, thereby providing a new tradable index every half year.”

Trac-x Japan is part of JP Morgan Chase and Morgan Stanley’s global agreement to merge their credit derivatives indexes under the Trac-x name. The banks have already launched Trac-x Europe as well as options based on Trac-x Europe.
