Analyst Report

This ETF takes a unique approach to volatility, an asset class that may be appealing for investors looking to smooth overall portfolio volatility though the addition of a non-correlated product. Whereas most VIX ETPs offer straight long or short exposure to an index comprised of VIX futures, this ETN mixes both long and short exposure, taking a 100% long position in the mid-term index and a 50% short position in an index of short-term futures. That structure is designed to exploit the potential inefficiencies in the VIX futures market, protecting against the potentially adverse impact of steep contango at the short end of the curve while still delivering exposure that exhibits low correlations to stocks and bonds. XVIX is a somewhat complex product, and investors considering this fund should be sure to understand the nuances of VIX futures markets, the ramifications of daily rebalancing in a long/short strategy, and the pros and cons of ETNs as investment vehicles. XVIX probably doesn't deserve a huge allocation in your portfolio, but a minor allocation may be appropriate for those looking to utilize alternatives to enhance the overall risk/return profile.
