This ETP offers exposure to medium-term VIX futures, giving investors a way to achieve exposure to an asset class that often exhibits a strong negative correlation with equities. It should be noted that VIIZ does not offer exposure to the spot VIX; rather it replicates an index comprised of futures contracts, and as such will be impacted by factors beyond simply movements in the "fear index." Because VIIZ consists of longer-dated futures contracts, it may feature diminished correlation to the spot VIX, but generally won't be subject to the significant contango-related return erosion experienced by short term products such as VXX, VIIX, or VIXY. Still, this product should not be a component of long-term buy-and-hold portfolios; it is designed for sophisticated investors with a short-term focus, and is nearly guaranteed to lose value over the long run. One structural note: as an ETN, VIIZ avoids tracking error but may expose investors to credit risk, as well as unique tax treatments. VIXM offers similar exposure in an ETF wrapper, while VXZ is a near-identical ETN alternative.
