The NBP Index family is composed of a universe of bonds registered in the Norwegian CSD (VPS), issued by Norwegian and foreign domiciled issuers. The indices are created to offer fixed-income investors with independent benchmarks to evaluate the performance of their portfolios.
The index family is constructed to meet the different needs of investors; thus, it aims to provide a relevant and accurate measure of performance of the Norwegian bond market, both aggregate and specific investment mandates.
To ensure the quality on the indices, several daily routines and controls are performed on input and output data, such as reference data and return components. NBP is an approved Benchmark Administrator, according to EU 2016/1011 Benchmark Regulation, by the Norwegian Financial Supervisory Authorities.
