The SGI Credit North America Investment Grade 125 Index (the Index) aims to replicate a self-financed and non-leveraged notional position of protection seller with respect to the latest launched series of the CDX NA IG 5Y Index, which exposes investors to the credit risk of 125 investment grade North American corporate names.
The Index isolates the returns of a long position in the CDX North American Investment Grade Index. By selling protection, the Index will receive a premium based on the average credit risk of a diversified portfolio of 125 names, experience a negative correlation to the CDX NA IG spread, and replicate the default risk of these 125 names. Every six months, the position in the Credit Default Swap is rolled into the newly launched series of the CDX NA IG Index. The SGI Credit Index always holds a position in the most current series of the CDX Index.
