Fund Objectives

The Fund seeks daily investment results, before fees, expenses, distributions, brokerage commissions and other transaction costs that endeavour to correspond to the inverse (opposite) of the daily performance of the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index. Any U.S. dollar gains or losses as a result of the ETFs investment will be hedged back to the Canadian dollar to the best of the ETFs ability.
