What’s Included in Our Data.
DIH provides end-of-day bond yield analytics for global debt securities, including:
- Government bonds
- Corporate bonds
- Fixed-rate issuances
- Floating issuances
- Convertible issuances
Our analytics include the following:
Yield – the return an investor realizes on a bond.
Yield to Maturity – the total rate of return that will have been earned by a bond when it makes all interest payments and repays the original principal.
Yield to Call – the return an investor receives if the bond is held until the call date, which occurs sometime before it reaches maturity.
Yield to Put – the yield at which an investor will put the bond back (sell the bond) back to the issuer.
Yield to Worst – a measure of the lowest possible yield that can be received on a bond with an early retirement provision.
Accrued Interest – the amount of interest earned on a bond, but not yet collected.
Macaulay Duration – the weighted average term to maturity of the cash flows from a bond.
Effective Duration – a duration calculation for bonds that have embedded options and that takes into account the fact that expected cash flows will fluctuate as interest rates change.
Modified Duration – following the concept that interest rates and bond prices move in opposite directions, this formula is used to determine the effect that a 100-basis-point (1%) change in interest rates will have on the price of a bond.
Key-Rate Duration – the change in a bond’s price in relation to a 100-basis-point (1%) change in the yield for a given maturity.
Convexity – a measure of the curvature, or the degree of the curve, in the relationship between a bond’s price and its yield, and that demonstrates how the duration of a bond changes as the interest rate changes.
