  • Index Key Points

    The BofA Merrill Lynch Global ex-US Issuers High Yield Constrained Index (HXUS) comprises:

    Below investment grade debt issued by corporations located throughout the world, which may include emerging market countries, excluding the United States, denominated in Euros, U.S. dollars, Canadian dollars or pounds sterling issued in the major domestic or Eurobond markets.

    Index Weighting:
    Index constituents are capitalization-weighted, based on their current amount outstanding, provided the total allocation to an individual issuer does not exceed 3%. Issuers that exceed the limit are reduced to 3% and the face value of each of their bonds is adjusted on a pro-rata basis. Similarly, the face value of bonds of all other issuers that fall below the 3% cap are increased on a pro-rata basis.

    Index Provider: BofA Merrill Lynch
