EVIX Fund Description

The VelocityShares 1X Long VSTOXX Futures ETN tracks an index of futures contracts on the Euro STOXX 50 Volatility Index, or VSTOXX, with a weighted average maturity of one month.

EVIX Factset Analytics Insight

EVIX offers exposure to volatility derivatives on the Euro STOXX 50, an index of 50 large-cap Eurozone stocks. The note rolls its exposure daily, such that the weighted average maturity of the underlying futures contracts is always one month away. Volatility futures deliver poor long-term exposure to their underlying indexes, and volatility ETPs have collectively erased vast sums of investor capital over the years. EVIX is not exempt from these concerns—as a short-term product, it should track the VSTOXX somewhat more closely than a mid-term ETP, but it will also be subject to the ferocious contango often found at the near end of the volatility futures curve. As a result, EVIX is only suitable for tactical, short-term positions, and the note’s steep expense ratio is less important than its trading costs. As an ETN, EVIX is an unsecured liability of UBS.
