“We see Mirror Futures Indices as an extremely useful index product for our clients to better align their portfolios with their specific interest rate outlook,” said Terrence Burke, US Head of Futures Distribution and Execution and Head of Futures Electronic Distribution.The launch of these indices coincides with the 40th anniversary of the Barclays index platform. Since the introduction of the US Government and US Corporate indices in 1973, and the US Aggregate in 1986, the Barclays Index, Portfolio & Risk Solutions (IPRS) business has grown into the industry-leading global provider of indices and portfolio analytics. Today the business comprises a broad offering of thousands of standard and bespoke indices spanning developed and emerging debt markets, investment grade and high yield bonds, fixed- and floating-rate debt, nominal and inflation-linked securities and the taxable and tax-exempt markets. In more recent years, Barclays has introduced a range of alternative weight indices including fiscal strength and GDP-weighted indices, a new family of LDI benchmarks, and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) themed fixed income indices. Barclays is recognized as the top-ranked bond market index provider in the US and Europe by Institutional Investor magazine and has placed first in the US survey every year since the category was first tracked in 1997.
