A systematic index designed to provide exposure to sectors of the U.S. economy positioned for growth.

The UBS truVol® US Target Sectors Index is a rules-based multi-asset index applying a sector selection process driven by fundamental market signals such as volatility and the potential for mean reversion.

In an attempt to generate consistent returns over time, the Index implements an adaptive strategy that combines U.S. equity and fixed income components.

Additionally, the Index applies a bespoke volatility control mechanism designed with Salt Financial to identify changing market conditions using intraday data, and stabilize the overall level of risk of the Index.
