NASDAQ OMX Expands The NASDAQ BulletShares Index Family

NEW YORK, Oct. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:NDAQ) is launching eight new indexes today in the NASDAQ BulletShares ® Index Family.

The new NASDAQ BulletShares Ladder Indexes are traditional bond ladders implemented through indexes utilizing target maturity bond ETFs.

"These new indexes will provide the financial community a benchmark for tracking one of the most common types of fixed-income investing, bond-laddering," said John Jacobs, Executive Vice President, NASDAQ OMX Global Indexes. "The NASDAQ BulletShares Ladder Indexes are the next step for NASDAQ and Accretive Asset Management in creating new ways to measure fixed income investing."

The BulletShares Ladder Indexes are equal-weighted and are rebalanced annually in December so that they have equal weightings across portfolio constituents. The Ladder Indexes, listed below, are comprised of Guggenheim BulletShares exchange-traded funds ― which track the NASDAQ BulletShares corporate and high yield fixed-income indexes.

BSCP03 NASDAQ BulletShares Corporate Debt 0-3 Ladder Index

The NASDAQ BulletShares Index Family is co-branded by NASDAQ OMX and Accretive Asset Management, LLC. The NASDAQ BulletShares Indexes represent the performance of an investment in a diversified, held-to-maturity portfolio of fixed-income securities with a common year of maturity. Accretive developed the BulletShares methodology in 2009 with the objective of combining the benefits of individual bonds and bond funds.
