Bond index

A bond index represents the value of a portion of the bond market. Bond indices are used as a measure of performance of that portion of the bond market, and is useful as an indication of market returns and as a benchmark against which the performance of a bond fund can be assessed.

A broad range of bond indices are available, each defined by the specific characteristics of the grouping of bonds represented. These characteristics include issuer type, such as government, municipal, corporate; credit rating, such as investment grade and high yield; region, such as global, country, emerging market; and purpose, such as green bonds and social bonds.
