Nations® is the World’s Leading Independent Developer of Volatility and Option-Enhanced Indexes

Options can provide a significant expansion of the patterns of portfolio returns – these patterns are superior to existing strategies. Nations creates these strategies and NationsShares, our ETF arm, will bring them to investors around the globe.

Why the Nations Shares Suite of Volatility Indexes is Superior to VIX

Nations VolDex measures implied volatility the way practitioners consider it – by focusing on at-the-money options. Volatility indexes which use a wide swath of options conflate the issues of volatility and skew. Nations Indexes has released a new fact sheet detailing the problems inherent in a measure that uses a wide swath of strike prices.
