The J.P. Morgan Fixed Income database is an invaluable tool for analysis of global bond markets. The indices come with comprehensive coverage, extensive history and a wide range of statistics.
Emerging Markets Indices
J.P. Morgan has consistently pioneered investor interest in Emerging Markets investments through the research and development of leading indices. The J.P. Morgan Emerging Market Bond Index (EMBI) was formed in the early 1990s after the issuance of the first Brady bond and has grown to become the most widely published and referenced index of its kind. More recently, J.P. Morgan led investors towards higher yielding local rates by launching the Government Bond Index-Emerging Markets (GBI-EM) series and the Corporate Emerging Markets Bond Index (CEMBI) series, both of which have become the new standard for local market and corporate EM benchmarks, respectively. Additionally, region specific coverage exists through the J.P. Morgan Asia Credit Index (JACI), the Russia Bond Index (RUBI), and the Latin America Eurobond Index (LEI).
Developed Markets Indices
J.P. Morgan's developed market indices include the local debt flagship products, the J.P. Morgan Government Bond Index (GBI) series and the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) Government Bond Index. These indices track fixed rate issuances from high-income countries spanning the globe. The developed markets index lineup has a long track record of investor adoption, since the launch of the GBI Global in 1989, and has since expanded coverage through the GBI Broad and the EMU Index. The developed markets indices also include the J.P. Morgan Cash Index, the US Agency Index, the Euro Linker Securities Index (ELSI), and the J.P. Morgan Municipal Bond Index (JMBI).
