Implied volatility indices – A review

Athanasios Fassas and Costas Siriopoulos

The Quarterly Review of Economics and Finance, 2021, vol. 79, issue C, 303-329

Abstract: This study tests and documents the information content of all publicly available implied volatility indices regarding both the realized volatility and the returns of the underlying asset. These topics present a path traveled by earlier work, but there are gains in studying together all 47 volatility-based indices that are now available, in order to examine if different asset classes and financial instruments could possess different return-volatility relations and forecasting ability.
