AccuShares Commodities Trust I, a newly-formed fund trust, has filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission to issue shares of seven exchange-traded funds.

Launch dates for the proposed ETFs have not yet been determined.
 
The first ETF expected to be offered, the AccuShares Spot CBOE VIX Fund, is designed to provide exposure to the CBOE Volatility Index.

Each ETF is designed for investors seeking cost-effective, targeted and transparent exposure to various spot and spot proxy prices represented by the ETF's Underlying Index.
