VIIX (VelocityShares VIX Short-Term ETN)

VIIX Exposure and Basic Characteristics

VIIX is a VelocityShares VIX ETN that provides an exposure similar to long position in short-term VIX futures. It is therefore a proxy (though far from perfect) to the VIX (CBOE Volatility Index). VIIX is very similar to several other VIX ETFs and ETNs, such as VXX or VIXY (these two have been considerably more popular and more liquid than VIIX).

Product type: ETN (exchange traded note)

Issuer: Credit Suisse AG

Provider: VelocityShares

Inception date: 29 November 2010
