Index Key Points

The ICE BofA Diversified High Yield US Emerging Markets Corporate Plus Index (EMLH) 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 G10, all Western European countries and territories of the U.S. and Western European countries.

Index Weighting: 
The 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 3% issuer cap. Countries and issuers that exceed the caps are reduced to 10% and 3%, respectively, and the face value of each of their bonds is adjusted on a pro-rata basis.
