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.
