  • Index Key Points

    The BofA Merrill Lynch High Yield US Emerging Markets Liquid Corporate Plus Index (EMHY) is comprised of:
    U.S. dollar-denominated bonds issued by non-sovereign emerging markets issuers that are rated below investment grade and issued in the major domestic or eurobond markets. In order to qualify for inclusion in the Index, an issuer must have risk exposure to countries other than members of the FX G109, all Western European countries and territories of the U.S. and Western European countries.

    Index Weighting: 
    Index constituents are capitalization-weighted based on their current amount outstanding times the market price plus accrued interest, subject to a 10% country of risk cap and a 2% issuer cap. Countries and issuers that exceed the limits are reduced to 10% and 2%, respectively, and the face value of each of their bonds is adjusted on a pro-rata basis. Similarly, the face values of bonds of all other countries and issuers that fall below their respective caps are increased on a pro-rata basis. In the event there are fewer than 10 countries in the Index, or fewer than 50 issuers, each is equally weighted and the face values of their respective bonds are increased or decreased on a pro-rata basis.

    Index provider: BofA Merrill Lynch
