TVIX vs. ETF Alternatives
TVIX Description
The VelocityShares Daily 2x VIX Short-Term ETNs (the “ETNs”) are senior, unsecured obligations of Credit Suisse AG (“Credit Suisse”) acting through its Nassau branch. The return on the ETNs is linked to twice (2x) the daily performance of the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures™ Index ER less the investor fee. The ETNs provide traders with an exchange traded instrument enabling them to efficiently express their market views on the short-term futures contracts on the CBOE SPX Volatility Index® (the “VIX®”). The ETNs do not guarantee any return of principal at maturity and do not pay any interest during their term.
