ETF Securities expands short and leveraged ETP range


ETP provider, ETF Securities Group, has announced the listing of 18 new three times short and leveraged commodity ETPs  and six new five times short and leveraged currency ETPs on the LSE. 

The firm writes that increased volatility across currencies and commodities and investors globally in 2015 have demonstrated an increased interest in short and leveraged ETPs, with ETF Securities own platform experiencing USD135 million of inflows year to date.
ETF Securities was the first provider to list European currency ETPs in 2010 and is now the first provider to list five times short and leveraged currency ETPs on the London Stock Exchange having already launched 3 times short and leveraged commodity and 5 times short and leveraged currency products in Italy and Germany earlier this year.
Commenting on the launch, Townsend Lansing, Executive Director – Head of Short / Leveraged & FX Platforms, ETF Securities (UK) Limited, says: “We are listing these new short and leveraged products on the London Stock Exchange in response to a strong demand from investors. We have seen tremendous growth in our short and leveraged platform across Europe over the last few years.
“The launch of our 3 times short and leveraged commodity products and 5 times short and leveraged currency products is a natural extension to our existing unleveraged range and offers a greater choice to investors.
“2015 has been a year of heightened currency volatility. We believe the additional leverage will first and foremost allow investors to use the currency products to hedge currency risk as well provide additional opportunities to trade on a short term basis with a competitive total cost of ownership.”
