‘Fear’ gauge-linked ETFs top performance charts


Lingering uncertainty in global financial markets last week vaulted volatility-linked exchange-traded products to the top of the table of the best performers, according to Morningstar, with the ETFX BofAML IVSTOXX ETF recording a one-week return of +8.33%.

Accompanying products linked to equity ‘fear’ gauges at the top of the performance chart, were products linked to less well-known commodities including lean hogs, zinc and lead.

Meanwhile, the worst performing ETP of the week at −9.04% was the iShares S&P CNX Nifty India Swap, which offers synthetic exposure to the largest and most liquid Indian equities. Joining the iShares ETP on the list of worst performers were products linked to gold producers and auto manufacturers.
