Objective

The SGI Italian Government Bond Index aims to replicate the performance of a long strategy rolling the first 10Y Italian Government Bond future contract. Every 3 months, the strategy rolls the long position of the older contract in to the new one in order to keep the exposure. The underlying of this contract is a synthetic Note with a 8.5 to 11-year maturity and 6% coupon issued by the Italian government.

Mechanism

The SGI Italian Government Bond Index is designed to track the performance of a notional position in the 10Y Italian Government Bond futures contract whose price depends on the interest rate proposed by Italia for a 8.5 to 11-year maturity. The exposure of the Index is achieved through a systematic roll of the 1st nearest 10Y Italian Government Bond future contract every 3 months on the EUREX market. The notional in the EUREX 10Y BTP future contract is revised every day to take into account the most recent past performance of the Index.
