The initial VIX as created by Whaley was a measurement based on the implied volatilities of eight options series on the OEX.[2] (The VIX was overhauled in 2003 to reflect expected volatility based on the S&P 500.) He also developed the CBOE's NASDAQ Volatility Index (VXN) in 2000, the CBOE's NASDAQ-100 BuyWrite Index (BXM) in 2001 and was co-developer of the Nasdaq OMX Alpha Indexes in 2010.

Whaley has editorial roles at a number of finance related journals, authors articles and books and frequently speaks at financial seminars.

He was was awarded the Joseph W. Sullivan Options Industry Achievement Award in 2015.[3]

Whaley travels to Ireland at least two times a year and built a fully functioning Irish-styled pub in his basement.[4][5]

Education[edit]

Whaley received a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Alberta in 1975, an MBA from the University of Toronto in 1976 and a Ph.D. from the University of Toronto in 1978.[6]
