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

The Tactical Volatility Fund is an optimized pooled investment vehicle which combines the Macro Vega program with a cash management overlay. Macro Vega is a statistical arbitrage strategy which identifies perceived mispricings in the VIX term structure. The strategy trades liquid CBOE VIX futures, no options. The addition of the cash management overlay is meant to enhance and smooth returns while offsetting some of the management fees.
