AXI and FXI are forward looking benchmark credit spreads that can be used in conjunction with the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”) to form a credit sensitive interest rate benchmark. The spreads were launched in 2022 and are published and administered by Invesco Indexing LLC, an independent index provider owned by global asset manager Invesco Ltd.
