i wondered what the motivation for professional investors could be to engage in VIX ETNs. Would they even think about trading this kind of product? (they normally should have access to VIX options, futures or variance swaps) And if they do, has anyone a reasonable explanation? (besides tight spreads etc...)

Cheers, Lennart
