About the Index

The ChinaBond ICBC 1 – 10 Year Treasury and Policy Bank Bond Index is an index which comprises of China government bonds and bonds issued by the 3 Chinese policy banks (Agricultural Development Bank of China, China Development Bank, Export-Import Bank of China) traded on the China Interbank Bond Market.

The 3 policy banks in China are state-owned entities and viewed effectively as quasi-government entities. These banks are responsible for financing economic and trade development and state-invested projects and support government-directed spending functions. The 3 policy banks have the same international credit rating as the Chinese government.

This Index is part of a series of bond indices which uses pricing data supplied by China Central Depository & Clearing (CCDC) and China Bond Pricing Centre (CBPC). CBPC's ChinaBond valuation is widely recognised as the gold standard in Chinese domestic bond valuation and an important indicator of the onshore RMB bond market.

CBPC is a subsidiary of CCDC, and is the leading pricing and index provider for the world’s second largest fixed income market, with over 90% of the AUM market share of all Chinese institutional investors.

CCDC is a wholly state-owned financial institution established by the State Council of China. As a pillar of China's financial market infrastructure, it provides central registration, depository and settlement services. Since its establishment, under tremendous support of the Chinese regulatory authorities, CCDC started from the centralised depository of China government bond and gradually developed into a Central Securities Depository for various kinds of financial products.

The NikkoAM-ICBCSG China Bond ETF will be the first ETF in the international arena to adopt an index published by CBPC.
