Summary

Certeza Asset Management LLC is a Utah based 100% quantitative VIX only trading firm specializing in volatility. Certeza uses highly sophisticated proprietary algorithms to capture perceived mispricings in the VIX term structure in order to generate high risk adjusted returns while striving for a zero correlation to both traditional and alternative asset classes. Certeza was founded in 2011 and is an NFA member and registered with the CFTC.

Investment Strategy

4x MACRO VEGA is a statistical arbitrage strategy which identifies perceived mispricings in the VIX term structure. The program trades liquid CBOE VIX futures, no options. Investors have the ability to notionally leverage to match individual risk tolerance. Management fees are not charged on notional amounts.

   

Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. The risk of loss in trading commodity futures, options, and foreign exchange ("forex") is substantial.
