Eurex, in partnership with Barclays Capital, is pleased to invite you and your colleagues to a workshop on Eurex VSTOXX® Futures and Options. The launch of the new VSTOXX® Mini Futures (FVS) contract was on June 2, 2009 and was recently complemented by the introduction of VSTOXX® Options contracts on March 22, 2010 which has already traded over 400,000 contracts.
Numerous studies have shown that volatility is the perfect asset class for the equity fund manager as a portfolio diversification tool. The aim of this workshop is to show that volatility can also be a source of alpha for the equity fund manager as well as a portfolio diversifier. The recognition of volatility as an investable and tradeable asset class was further enhanced with the launch by Barclays Capital on April 27, 2010 of the iPath® VSTOXX® Short-Term Futures Total Return ETN.
ETF Securities and The World Gold Council invites you to attend this unique opportunity to gain valuable insight into the fundamental factors driving gold prices, insights into future supply and demand and the outlook for Gold.
12.00pm – Registration
