The new VIX futures CFD is designed to provide clients with valuable opportunities to gain exposure to the expected volatility of the S&P 500 Index or incorporate as part of a broader portfolio hedging strategy. The new CFD product will be made available for trading via API from Invast trading servers as part of a broader Index offering encompassing both data and execution.

James Alexander, Chief Commercial Officer at Invast Global, said: “Invast Global has for a long time been a strong proponent of multi-asset solutions for brokers and continues to focus on innovation with the release of a new VIX futures CFD. By continuing to work with client-focused partners like Cboe, we are excited about the product suite that we have been able to deliver across FX, Index Products and Global Equities.”

We are pleased to support Invast’s creation of a new volatility-based CFD and meet growing broker demand for tradeable products that provide exposure to the Cboe Volatility (VIX) Index.”
