Arrow Insight Indexes
A.I. Managed Futures Volatility Index
The A.I. Managed Futures Volatility Index (AIMFV) is a long/short/flat diversified managed futures index. The index is both systematically and quantitatively based index of numerous components that serve as a proxy for exposures to economic sectors related to financial futures, commodity and volatility futures.
The Dow Jones (DJ) Global Yield Index is a globally diversified index with significant exposure in energy-related securities and foreign currencies. Global Yield hedges inflation better than broad commodity indexes such as the Reuters Jefferies CRB Index when inflation rises if nominal gross domestic product ($$GDP) is recording growth. The Positive Combo has historically enhanced firm profits and the credit standing of energy/commodity firms, which in turn lifts commodity security and commodity prices, enhancing the total return of high-yield global stocks and bonds.
