VIIX Fund Description

The VelocityShares Daily Long VIX Short-Term ETN tracks an index of futures contracts on the CBOE Volatility Index with, on average, 1 month until maturity. It resets its exposure daily.

VIIX Factset Analytics Insight

VIIX is one of three volatility ETPs that offer short-term VIX futures exposure, but low assets make it less attractive. Two immediate caveats: 1) volatility ETPs deliver poor long-term exposure to the VIX index; and 2) volatility ETPs erased vast sums of investor capital over the past 12 months. Still, short-term VIX ETPs like VIIX generally make better tools for tactical exposure to the VIX than midterm products. (Short term means one month average term VIX futures.) They also did a better job than midterm ETPs at matching the VIX statistically over the past 12 months, but lost more money from greater contango in their futures positions. VIIX’s performance was indistinguishable from its two short-term peers, but its low AUM raises concerns about its viability. The ETN trades well, but institutions can do better elsewhere.
