Short and leveraged ETP issuer Leverage Shares has listed 42 new ETPs on London Stock Exchange. The firm writes that this is the largest number of ETPs to be listed on the Exchange in a single day and sees Leverage Shares’ ETPs account for 10 per cent of all LSE-listed ETPs.
It also makes Leverage Shares the provider with the most single stock ETPs available on the exchange, the firm says. For the first time the company is listing a number of commodity-based ETPs on Gold, Silver, and Oil, alongside single stock and regional and sector ETPs.
The firm writes that given the turmoil that has hit markets in 2022, the company has also launched 12 market-based ETPs on Asian, US, and European indices to provide investors the opportunity to implement regional- and sector-based strategies. These include South Korea, China, Taiwan, Japan, US Tech 100, US 500, Germany 40.
Among the single stock additions to the ETP stable are car manufacturers Mercedes Benz and Volkswagen, plus ETPs in big tech names, including Alphabet, Apple and Facebook. Additionally, South Korea’s largest e-commerce company, Coupang (often referred to as the ‘Amazon of South Korea’) is available on a -3x short and 3x long basis.
Raj Sheth, Commercial Director at Leverage Shares says: “We are delighted to break our own record by listing 42 ETPs in a single day, in response to the growing investor interest in our format. As well as increasing the single-stock offer to even more countries, we have extended our suite to offer regional indices as the world has become more macro and volatile. With commodities, especially the oil price are increasingly affecting sentiment, inflation and hence asset prices we are pleased to offer access to them this time.”
