Leverage Shares rolls out 28 inverse and leveraged US stock ETPs

The ETPs offer investors the tools to enact tactical positions on individual US stocks.

The ETPs offer inverse (-1x), double leveraged (2x), or triple leveraged (3x) exposure to the return on the underlying stock, reset daily.

Current inverse and leveraged ETPs typically use derivatives, such as swaps, to achieve their leverage, introducing credit risk to investors.

Leverage Shares ETPs, however, do away with credit risk and are fully backed by purchasing the underlying stocks directly – using proceeds from the issuance of the ETPs and a margin loan. Residual cash, such as dividends from the underlying stocks, is also reinvested.

According to Leverage Shares, the firm’s ability to access margin borrowing at institutional rates allows it to offer its products to investors at a competitive rate. Each ETP comes with an expense ratio of 0.75%.

Oktay Kavrak, Institutional Sales at Leverage Shares, commented, “Leverage Shares is the only provider of physically backed short and leveraged ETPs and does away with the credit risk found in competing products. Given the heightened interest in short and leveraged offerings in the current volatile environment, we are proud to offer a safer alternative to trading contract for differences (CFDs) or buying on margin.”

Inverse and leveraged ETPs can be considered inappropriate for retail investors who perhaps might not fully understand the risks involved. Specifically, these products tend to decay in value if held for an extended period of time, potentially leading to significant losses, especially in volatile but range-bound markets.

For sophisticated traders, however, they can offer an efficient means to obtain tactical exposures.

Leverage Shares ETPs provide investors with the tools to hedge positions or make high conviction trades in some of the world’s most important companies, from tech giants such as Apple, Microsoft, and Google to consumer discretionary blockbuster firms like Netflix, Amazon, and Tesla.

Oktay added, “Our products are meant for experienced investors to capitalize on opportunities in both directions. These include short-term tactics like magnifying intraday moves and reacting to the news, while also catering to longer-term strategies like managing risk through hedging.”

Lida Eslami, Head of Business Development, ETP and IOB, London Stock Exchange, added, “We are delighted to welcome Leverage Shares’ products on London Stock Exchange. Our markets continue to offer investors a wide range of innovative products, providing choice and diversification for their portfolios. The listing of the Leverage Shares short & leveraged ETPs based on leading US stocks is a first in Europe.”
