S&P extends custom index capabilities


Standard & Poor’s has extended its custom index capabilities to the commodity and fixed income markets.

Standard & Poor’s has extended its custom index capabilities to the commodity and fixed income markets.

The new offering will give investors and product providers the ability to design, construct, manage and market new indices to match any investment strategy or mandate across the full spectrum of asset classes.

In addition to equities, currencies and real estate, Standard & Poor’s now offers its custom index clients commodity and fixed income underlyings covering the world’s money markets, sovereign and corporate debt, leveraged loans and credit default swaps. This will enable investors to distill their own investment ideas into new benchmarks or investable indices, structured products, over-the-counter options or notes, mutual funds and exchange-traded funds.

‘Standard & Poor’s equips investors with the data, tools and support they need to develop innovative investment products that are reliable, comprehensive and transparent, while drawing on our  expertise and independence as a third party index provider and renowned reference on the world’s commodities and credit markets,’ says Tim Eisenhauer, vice president of Standard & Poor’s. ‘Custom indices offer a compelling opportunity for product providers to differentiate themselves from their competitors, create new indices that don’t currently exist, outsource risk and reduce tracking error.’

In developing custom indices with commodity or fixed income underlyings, investors can either draw on an existing S&P index such as the S&P GSCI or create an entirely new index idea not currently available in the market.
