The performance statistics indicate the value Short and Leverage (“S&L”) ETPs can bring to investors, with Boost’s 3x S&L ETPs having been first introduced to the LSE in December 2012. More recently, Boost ETPs were listed on the Borsa Italiana to meet investor demand.
The two most popular equity ETFs traded on Borsa Italiana in September 2013 were S&L ETFs contributing to over 25% of all ETF volumes while the four most popular ETCs traded on Borsa Italiana in August were also S&L ETCs contributing to over 45% of all ETC volumes.
S&L ETPs are attractive to investors as they provide up to 3x or -3x the exposure through one simple trade, negating the need for complex documentation or use of derivatives. Recently, trading volumes of Boost ETPs have risen dramatically with increased interest in products providing exposure to equities (short EURO STOXX 50, S&L FTSE 100 and short FTSE MIB), and commodities (S&L gold, leverage natural gas and leverage silver).
Nik Bienkowski, Co-CEO of Boost ETP commented:
“Equities continued their rise in October after a strong September with Boost LevDAX 3x Daily ETP (3DEL) returning 18.3% (in GBP) for October, also saw the launch of 3x equity ETPs and 3x commodity ETCs on Borsa Italiana. Italian investors have already taken to short and leveraged ETPs. The most traded ETPs on Borsa Italiana are ETPs providing leverage exposure to the FTSE MIB and Natural Gas. Global Short and Leveraged ETP assets currently stand at over $50 billion.”
Investors are increasingly using S&L ETPs for a variety of reasons. There is wider product availability, greater product knowledge from improved educational resources and increased demand for hedging tools and leveraged instruments available. There is also a move towards independent, transparent and exchange traded instruments such as ETFs and ETPs. As a result of this increased usage and interest in S&L ETPs, Boost recently launched a monthly Global Short & Leverage ETF / ETP Report and a Short & Leverage ETF / ETP Advisor Tool Kit. As part of its commitment to education, Boost ETP was also recently awarded CPD status, which means all educational material created by Boost will allow end users to gain CPD accredited points.
