S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures 2.25x Leverage Daily ETP
Boost S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures 2.25x Leverage Daily ETP is a fully collateralised, UCITS eligible Exchange-Traded Product. The ETP provides 2.25 times the daily performance of the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index ER, which measures the return from a daily rolling long position in the first and second month VIX futures contracts, adjusted to reflect fees and costs inherent to maintaining and rolling a leveraged position in the underlying futures, plus the interest revenue earned on the collateralised amount.
For example, if the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index ER rises by 1% over a day, then the ETP will rise by 2.25%, excluding fees. However if the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index ER falls by 1% over a day, then the ETP will fall by 2.25%, excluding fees.

S&P 500 VIX SHORT-TERM FUTURES INDEX ER
The S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index measures the excess return from a daily rolling long position in the first and second month VIX futures contracts. The Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index, otherwise known as “VIX”, is a volatility index consisting of a portfolio of S&P 500 options that together reflect the market’s expectation of future volatility. S&P Dow Jones Indices calculates various benchmarks tracking the performance of the futures contracts that settle to VIX, as well as other indices that employ the VIX methodology.
Even though the index measures excess return performance based on the futures price performance and the roll return, the ETP provides a total return performance which also includes the interest revenue on the collateralised amount.
