Leverage Shares broadens range of ETPs with FAANG+ basket and fixed income


Leverage Shares, a manager of Exchange Traded Products (ETPs), has expanded its product offerings on global exchanges. The array of new launches comes after achieving a record monthly turnover of more than $420m across its product range in February 2023.

Among the new product listings are several firsts for the company, including a FAANG+ basket ETP and Short & Leveraged (S&L) ETPs tracking fixed income.

The basket ETP is the first pure-play providing physical, concentrated exposure to a group of leading technology stocks for European investors. With this new ETP structure, the company is able to eliminate ‘fillers’ that are common with UCITS ETFs (which have concentration restrictions) and provide non-diluted exposure to US tech leaders.

Leverage Shares is also launching an innovative, actively managed strategy that seeks to capitalise on the ‘contango’ of the volatility curve, while managing the risk of dramatic volatility spikes.

The company’s single stock suite has also expanded with 3x and -3x versions of household equities like Exxon [NYSE:XOM] and Ferrari [NYSE:RACE]. Other products include 3x and -3x broad market trackers which provide exposure to the Indian stock market.

Commenting on the launch, Oktay Kavrak, Director of Product Strategy at Leverage Shares said, “We are proud to gear up sophisticated investors with the tools necessary to navigate the current volatility in interest rates and inflation expectations. By adding S&L fixed income ETPs, our first pure-play basket and more single names to our lineup of 170+ products in London, we’ve solidified our place as the go-to provider of alternative investments (ETPs) for investors across the UK and Europe.”

Leveraged and inverse exposure

One of the special features of Leverage Shares’ ETPs is that many of the securities are equipped with leveraged and inverse exposure. This allows investors to participate with magnified exposure in both rising and falling markets. The management fee is between 0.35 and 0.75 percent — significantly less than alternative means of trading with leverage like CFDs.

Leverage Shares has also declared a fee holiday for its Inverse Tesla [NASDAQ:TSLA] and NIO [NYSE:NIO] ETPs. They will trade with a 0% management fee until at least 30th September 2023.

Offering positive yields on all inverse ETPs is among the unique features of Leverage Shares’ products. The positive yields on some ETPs are now reaching more than 10% on an annualised basis.

All Leverage Shares ETPs are physically backed. This means the ETPs physically own the underlying asset, so no swaps or derivatives are used to gain exposure.
