*Volatility Risk Premium is defined as Implied Volatility minus Subsequent Realized Volatility. Subsequent Realized Volatility is the annualized standard deviation of daily returns over the subsequent 1-month period. Implied volatility is the estimated volatility of a security’s price. It represents an estimate of future price movement over a 1-month period, not an indication of price, and there is no guarantee price will follow the prediction.

Alpha: The excess return of an investment relative to the return of a benchmark index.

Performance quoted is past performance and is not a guarantee of future results. Products have fees that reduce their performance, indexes do not. You cannot invest directly in an index. For further information see the Fact Sheet below.
