List of VIX ETFs

Updated Aug 3, 2020
The VIX index, which computes volatility using a complex mathematical model using options data, has become a widely-popular measure of volatility. It is the most referred indicator of the overall market volatility. Since exchange-traded funds (ETF) have gained tremendous popularity as a low-cost investment options, many fund houses and asset management companies have launched several VIX ETFs. This article lists the available VIX-based exchange-traded funds for investors interested in taking a shot at volatility index movement.

How do VIX ETFs Work?

VIX ETFs may come in many flavors. The basic one is a simple tracker of the VIX index, that is - it simply replicates the value of the VIX index price movement. This is achieved by taking positions in the VIX index based futures and other instruments.
The other types of VIX ETFs are the leveraged ETFs, which aim to amplify the returns generated by the VIX index. For instance, if the VIX index value rises by 1.5 percent, the 2x leveraged VIX ETF will rise by 3 percent during the same time period. Similarly, the Inverse VIX 3x leveraged ETF will go down by -4.5 percent during the same period as it is set to generate the 'inverse' returns magnified by a factor of 3.
Most of such VIX ETFs generate returns as per their defined methodology by taking positions in VIX-based futures.
One can also explore the list of Inverse VIX ETFs which generate returns in opposite direction of VIX movement. VIX ETFs are a sub-set of the general Volatility ETFs, which aim to have high volatility stocks in their portfolio. For those who like to avoid volatility, there is the list of Low Volatility ETFs.
Following is the list of all 12 exchange-traded funds that FKnol has in its database for ETFs which belong to the VIX category:
