The Investment Adviser shall provide advice on the following areas of the Funds including but not limited to:
- product development;
- management of the investment portfolio; and
- operational functions.
- A Leveraged ETF aims to amplify the returns of an underlying index.
- For example, the returns of a (2x) Leveraged ETF would be 2 times that of the underlying index.
- So if the underlying index sees a gain of 2%, the (2x) Leveraged ETF will see a gain of 4%.
- However, you should note that if the underlying index records a loss of 2%, the (2x) Leveraged ETF will also move lower, and see a loss of 4%.
- An Inverse ETF aims to provide you the reverse performance of an underlying index.
- For example, the returns of a (-1x) Inverse ETF would be the opposite of its underlying index.
- So if the underlying index sees a loss of 2%, the (-1x) Inverse ETF will see a gain of 2%.
- However, you should note that if the underlying index records a gain of 2%, the (-1x) Inverse ETF will see a loss of 2%.
- ETFs - which are commonly known as benchmark trackers - typically aims to provide investment results that closely correspond to that of its benchmark.
- For the (2x) Leveraged strategy ETF, the benchmark would reflect the objective of providing 200% exposure to the underlying index; while the benchmark for the (-1x) Inverse strategy ETF would reflect the objective of providing -100% exposure to the underlying index.
- This differs from conventional ETFs that provide a 100% exposure to its benchmark - thus providing investor a clear indication of what the ETF is tracking.
- Hence it is important for investors to take note of an ETF’s benchmark, as well as its underlying index, if any.
- The Leveraged, and Inverse strategy ETFs use derivatives such as futures contracts to meet its investment objective.
- A (2x) Leveraged ETF would buy futures contracts up to 200% it’s value to provide investors with the 2x magnified performance returns of the Underlying Index.
- Similarly, a (-1x) Inverse ETF would have a short exposure of up to -100% it’s value to provide investors with the opposite performance of the Underlying Index.
- Futures-based ETFs – such as Leveraged, and Inverse ETFs – will have an investment manager who will manage the trading of the futures contracts. On the other hand, investors would be required to perform their own monitoring when trading directly into futures contracts.
- Some of the monitoring that would need to be carried out are:
Futures Leveraged and Inverse ETFs Expiration dates of futures contracts
- Futures contracts hold an expiration date.
Requires monitoring by Investor Performed by Investment Manager Portfolio risk
- Futures contracts generally provide investors with a higher exposure to the underlying assets. For example, the NYSE FANG+ Futures contracts provide investors a 50 times exposure level to the NYSE FANG+ Index.
- As such, investors would need to monitor their total market exposure to manage their portfolio risk.
Requires monitoring by Investor Performed by Investment Manager Margin requirements
- Margin requirements are required by brokers prior to entering into a futures contract.
- Requirements may vary depending on the contract, and the prevailing market conditions caused by market volatility, supply and demand dynamics, etc.
- Brokers may make margin calls on an investors account when funds are no longer sufficient. Inability to meet this margin call may lead to the broker closing on the investor’s contract exposure.
Requires monitoring by Investor Performed by Investment Manager
- By investing into an ETF – the monitoring is left to the ETF Manager thus eliminating the hassle for the investors.
- These ETF strategies are commonly used as trading tools for short-term investors.
- Because of the daily rebalancing to always ensure that the ETF’s exposure is either 200% (for a 2x Leveraged strategy ETF) or -100% (for a -1x Inverse strategy ETF), the performance of the ETF will not reflect that of the underlying index when compared over a period longer than one (1) day.
- Leveraged, and Inverse ETFs can be used as tactical investment tools to take advantage of prevailing market conditions.
- Leveraged ETFs are ideal in an up-market environment, while an Inverse ETF is beneficial in a down-market environment. So there is always a suitable investment product for investors irrespective of market conditions.
- Investors are advised to read and understand the risks that is involved in Leveraged and Inverse strategy ETFs – given the sophistication of their underlying investment of futures contracts, and the investment strategy that they take respectively.
- The Leveraged and Inverse ETFs are suitable for investors who have a shorter-term investment horizon.
- It is also suitable for investors who are able to make quick investment decisions.
- Most importantly, the ETFs are suitable for investors with higher risk-tolerance as the nature of these ETFs would be of higher risk than that of a conventional equity ETF.
- Upon listing on 29 November 2019, the TradePlus Daily (2x) Leveraged and (-1x) Inverse ETFs will be available for trading on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia Securities.
- Similar to a stock, an investor would need a brokerage account with any brokerage house to transact in units of the ETF.
- For Leveraged and Inverse ETFs, investors are required to meet ANY ONE of the following requirements, and shall declare themselves as such to their broker:
- Be a Sophisticated investor; or
- Have a margin account; or
- Have executed at least 5 transactions in exchange-traded derivatives, or warrants within the preceding 12 months; or
- Have utilised a performance simulator which simulates trading in Leveraged and Inverse ETF units, and have undergone an e-learning tutorial developed by Bursa Malaysia Securities for trading in Leveraged and Inverse ETFs.
