Objective

The Dynamic Short VIX Futures Index is a dynamic allocation between a hypothetical money market instrument and a dynamic strategy (the “Strategy”) designed to provide efficient short exposure to the first two nearby futures contracts on  the VIX Index.

Mechanism

The Index tracks the performance of a money market instrument in USD and a Strategy taking short positions on the 1st to 2nd VIX futures contract. When the VIX Future Term structure is in backwardation, the index aims at not taking any position to potentially avoid losses. When the VIX Future Term structure is in contango, the index aims at rolling short term futures to potentially generate a carry gain.
