Our risk indices have been engineered to indicate the downside potential global and regional sovereign debt investments on an aggregated basis in percentage points.
A low percentage reading indicates a rather positive and low-risk environment for government bonds.
Generally, an index level equal to or above 60% should indicate a relatively high-risk situation.
The comprehensive and broad Global Bond Market Risk Index (GBMRI) is tracking sovereign debt publicly issued by the 21 most important countries. The GBMRI consists of three regional sub-indices.
