The S&P 500 Dynamic VIX Futures Index dynamically allocates between the S&P 500 Short-Term VIX Futures Index and S&P 500 Mid-Term VIX Futures Index, by monitoring the steepness of the implied volatility curve, to provide a cost-efficient exposure to forward implied volatility.
The S&P 500® VIX Futures Index Series is a suite of investable indices that offers investors directional exposure to volatility through publicly traded futures markets, and seeks to model the outcome of holding a long position in VIX futures contracts.
