The Wilshire Bond Index Family is comprised of the Wilshire Bond IndexSM and Wilshire TIPS IndexSM. The Wilshire Bond Index is designed to measure the performance of the broad U.S. taxable fixed income market, based on the actual holdings of U.S. institutional investors from Wilshire Trust Universe Comparison Service® (Wilshire TUCS®), a cooperative database that is widely accepted as the definitive benchmark for U.S. plan assets and allocation. Over $4 trillion in institutional assets within Wilshire TUCS is used to dynamically define the institutional U.S. bond market, and aggregated fixed income holdings from approximately 2,000 U.S. institutions are used to update membership to the Wilshire Bond index on a quarterly basis. Introduced in 2016, the Wilshire Bond Index has a time series of data that begins June 30, 2004.
The Wilshire TIPS Index measures the performance of a basket of U.S. Treasury Inflation Protected Securities (TIPS) that is constructed with a target maturity similar to the 10-Year T-Note Futures Contract. Introduced in 2020, the Wilshire TIPS Index has a time series of data that begins on December 31, 2004.
