Inverse Volatility ETFs


Most of these ETFs seek to provide investors exposure to the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX). These ETFs can be used to profit from declines in VIX index as they are designed to appreciate in value when volatility levels drop. We view inverse or leveraged ETF categories as simply suited for aggressive investors only who are willing to accept the exaggerated returns offered by these particular ETFs and are prone to more active portfolio management. We see limited appeal for long-term investors.
