Overview - VIXH

The investment seeks results that correspond generally to an equity index called the CBOE(R) VIX(R) Tail Hedge Index. The fund will normally invest at least 90% of its net assets in common stocks and call options included in the index. The index is composed of each of the equity securities comprising the S&P 500 and a call option position on the Chicago Board Options Exchange Market Volatility Index. The amount of the index allocated to call options on the VIX Index is reevaluated and rebalanced each month, depending on the level of forward expected volatility in the S&P 500, as measured by the closest to maturity VIX Index futures. It is non-diversified.
