The SGI Vol Invest Gravity Index aims to generate positive performance from potential mean-reversion patterns in the SGI Vol Invest Spread Index by capturing the spread between its daily and biweekly variance, while capping and flooring the delta of the performance of the Index over the performance of the SGI Vol Invest Spread Index at respectively 200% and -20%.
The Index aims to benefit from the US volatility market’s tendency to mean revert, which should result, on average, in a positive spread between daily variance and biweekly variance. To exploit this potential bias, the Index holds a hypothetical portfolio of ten Variance Spread (difference between the daily and the biweekly variance), rolled every day.
The contribution of the portfolio of Variance Spreads to the Index is capped (or floored) on a daily basis at 200% (or -20%) of the daily performance of the Underlying Index.
