Our Philosophy

Generate Income by exploiting the directional certainty of leveraged Volatility Instruments.

Why Invest In Volatility?

Alternative assets like volatility can offer the opportunity to make more aggressive returns than the S&P 500 or your standard equities/bond portfolio.

We generally experience less capital drawdowns over the course of the year and it’s a great diversification opportunity as volatility investing is not directly exposed to stocks, real estate, bitcoin, gold, or currency markets. Unlike most investment strategies, we seek to potentially benefit from both periods of crisis and periods of calm.

Board of Directors
Portrait of Ali Zandi, Executive Director and Founder of CI Volatility Fund, who pioneered innovative technology and financial strategies.
Ali is the Co-founder of two successful technology startups. In 2013, he pioneered one of the first “live chat for business” software companies in the world. He brought this idea to market ahead of even juggernauts such as Facebook who only introduced their version of ”Messenger for business” in 2015. His startup went on to get acquired by a large USA company.

After exiting the software world, he developed a set of unique math formulas designed to exploit the natural decay of Leveraged Volatility Instruments for premium collecting.
