CRTx® and RSKFREx™ Index Suites Now on Refinitiv

The CRTx® (Credit Risk Transfer Return Tracking Index) suite, including daily historical index levels, periodic returns, and month-end rebalancing risk/reward metrics, and the new RSKFREx™ Index and Rate suite, are now available on Refinitiv™ (a London Stock Exchange Group company) fixed income data products, including the Eikon terminal and the DataScope Select data delivery platform (https://www.refinitiv.com/en/products).

MF&Co Introduces The RSKFREx™ Index Suite

Rolling Short-Term Key Funding Reference Index & Rate

The RSKFREx™ (Rolling Short-term Key Funding Reference Index) is a fixed income total return benchmarking suite that emulates recurring investment in a prevailing short-term 4-week U.S. Treasury Bill. The suite is comprised of the RSKFREx™ Index and the corresponding RSKFREx™ Rate. Both fluctuate directly with prevailing market rates, are settled daily, and rebalanced monthly to provide a realistic representation of the execution economics from “rolling” 4-week U.S. Treasury Bills, allowing for straightforward, practical, and highly flexible benchmarking of excess returns and/or funding costs.
