US Balanced truVol® Risk Control 7% Index

Targets 7% portfolio volatility by dynamically adjusting exposure among stocks, Treasury bonds, and cash on a daily basis.


The US Balanced truVol® Risk Control 7% Index is designed to provide exposure to both US equities and Treasuries while targeting a constant volatility level of 7%. The Index uses the truVol® Risk Control Engine (RCE) to help optimize weighting between the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) and the iShares 7-10 Year Treasury Bond ETF (IEF). The strategy also uses the RCE to maintain a daily volatility target of 7%, using non-remunerating cash to reduce exposure if necessary.

The Index is rebalanced daily and calculated in excess of a daily accrual of the Federal Funds Effective Rate (Excess Return) and includes an index fee of 50 basis points.
