BOOST ETP’s AUM reaches a record USD97 million


BOOST ETP’s AUM has reached a record of USD97 million, led by recent inflows into short and leveraged ETPs tracking natural gas and FTSE 250.

BOOST’s AUM has increased 130 per cent since January 2014 and 450 per cent over the past 12 months.
BOOST’s Co-CEO, Nik Bienkowski (pictured), says: “Due to recent market volatility, investors are increasingly using BOOST’s ETPs. We have seen turnovers climb to over USD200 million in March, tightened spreads and increased order flow. In the UK and in Italy we see investors asking not only for tactical tools to express their directional view, but also for effective hedging tools which allow them to use their capital efficiently. Crucially, investors show that they understand the versatility of short & leveraged ETPs, and how they can be used to add value in a wide range of market environments.”
Since the start of 2014, BOOST has seen USD56 million of net inflows. While inflows into BOOST’s equity ETPs (USD21 million) have been mixed into both long and short ETPs, inflows into BOOST’s commodity ETCs (USD35 million) have not been as divided.  ETPs providing short exposure to natural gas (exchange tickers 3NGS and 2NGS), long exposure to silver (3SIL, 2SIL) and long exposure to oil (3OIL) have seen overwhelmingly more inflows than the opposite exposures.
BOOST’s head of research, Viktor Nossek, says: “In the past week we have seen our investors continue to position themselves bearishly on natural gas, with flows into BOOST Natural Gas 3x Short Daily ETP (3NGS) and flows out of BOOST Natural Gas 3x Leverage Daily ETP (3NGL). This continues what we have been seeing globally in S&L ETPs since March, as the fading of the US’s cold snap sees investors replace the previously bullish sentiment in natural gas with bearish sentiment.”
