Bloomberg Announces Fixed Income Indices Rebrand

New York – WEBWIRE

Bloomberg today announced that the Bloomberg Barclays fixed income benchmark indices will be rebranded as the “Bloomberg Indices” as of August 24, 2021. This change will occur as planned at the end of the five-year period following Bloomberg’s acquisition of Barclays Risk Analytics and Index Solutions (BRAIS) in August of 2016.

The flagship fixed-income benchmarks including the U.S., Euro, Asia-Pacific, Global Aggregate, U.S. Municipals, High-Yield and Emerging Market indices will all be included in this rebrand, as will all bespoke fixed income indices. This also includes the Bloomberg Barclays MSCI indices, which, as of August 24, 2021, will be the Bloomberg MSCI indices.

“We’re very grateful for the support we’ve received from Barclays since the acquisition in 2016,” said Steve Berkley, CEO of Bloomberg Index Services Limited (formerly known as BRAIS). “We are excited by the growth and innovation that we’ve seen across our indices business, and we look forward to continuing to provide leading index solutions not only in fixed income but across asset classes.”

“Throughout Barclays’ history, we have constantly evolved and innovated to better serve our clients’ changing needs,” said Paul Degen, Head of Credit Sales at Barclays. “Having partnered with Bloomberg for many years, we are confident they will build on this tradition and grow under the new brand of the Bloomberg Indices. We thank them for the continued partnership and support.”

Since 1973, the Bloomberg Barclays Indices have been the most widely-used indices for fixed income investors seeking objective, rules-based, and representative benchmarks to measure asset class risk and returns. Whether published under the banner of Kuhn Loeb, Lehman Brothers, Barclays or Bloomberg Barclays, these indices have provided investors with a wealth of market information. On August 24, 2016, Bloomberg acquired these assets from Barclays, with the agreement that they be co-branded for five years. As of August 24, 2021, the indices will be branded as the Bloomberg Indices.

Bloomberg provides an independent, transparent approach to indexing for global customers across core asset classes. Bloomberg also offers an array of services to clients interested in custom index development, investable index products, index administration and calculation agent services.
