The investment seeks to provide investors with exposure to the Barclays US Treasury 2Y/10Y Yield Curve Index™.
The Barclays US Treasury 2Y/10Y Yield Curve Index™ (the "index") employs a strategy that seeks to capture returns that are potentially available from a "steepening" or "flattening", as applicable, of the U.S. Treasury yield curve through a notional rolling investment in U.S. Treasury note futures contracts. The level of the index is designed to increase in response to a "steepening" of the yield curve and to decrease in response to a "flattening" of the yield curve.
