Nasdaq-100 Volatility Control 5% Index™
Targets 5% volatility using truVol forecasts to dynamically rebalance the index, increasing or decreasing exposure to the Nasdaq-100 Total Return Index®.
The Nasdaq-100® Volatility Control Series (the “Series”) is designed to deliver exposure to the NASDAQ-100 Total Return Index (ticker: XNDX®) while targeting a constant level of volatility. The Series uses the truVol® Risk Control Engine (RCE) to dynamically allocate between XNDX and non-remunerating cash in aiming to achieve the volatility target. Developed by Salt Financial, the RCE is designed to offer higher levels of responsiveness and accuracy in targeting volatility for risk-controlled indices. The mechanism generally allocates more to XNDX when volatility falls and more to cash when it rises.
The Series is rebalanced daily and calculated in excess of a daily accrual of a reference financing rate (Excess Return). Although each Index within the Series is designed to target a specific risk level, there are no guarantees each Index will achieve these results.
