BENCHMARK DESCRIPTION

The Bloomberg Barclays Euro Aggregate 1-10yr bond index represents the Euro Aggregate 1-10yr component of the Bloomberg Barclays Pan-European Aggregate index. The Bloomberg Barclays Euro-Aggregate Index consists of bonds issued in the euro or the legacy currencies of the 17 sovereign countries participating in the European Monetary Union (EMU). All issues must be investment grade rated, fixed-rate securities with at least one year remaining to maturity. The Euro-Aggregate Index excludes convertible securities, floating rate notes, perpetual notes, warrants, linked bonds, and structured products. German Schuldscheine (quasi-loan securities) are also excluded because of their trading restrictions and unlisted status, which results in illiquidity. The country of issue is not an index criterion, and securities of issuers from outside the Eurozone
