London, UK – 27th October 2021 –Leverage Shares, a pioneer in the market of single-stock Short & Leveraged Exchange Traded Products (ETPs) has surpassed $100m in AUM.
According to FE Analytics, four of Leverage Shares’ ETPs appeared in the top 10 best performing ETFs of 2020.
The company’s leveraged ETPs mimic the daily return of an underlying stock multiplied by a leverage factor of +3x, +2x, -1x, -2x and -3x. They provide leveraged exposure to globally popular names including Tesla, Amazon, Alibaba, Microsoft, Nio as well as FTSE100 equities, such as Vodafone.
Leverage Shares’ stock tracker ETPs, the first fractional shares, are 100% physically backed and offer investors 1:1 exposure to these same popular stocks at very low rates of 0.15% per annum. Investors can hence access global stocks – in fractions of $5 – compared with their standard market prices.
The ETPs are listed on the London Stock Exchange, Euronext Paris and Euronext Amsterdam. Investors can trade a stock in their own time zone and currency (USD, EUR and GBx) without paying high FX fees, even if the company is listed elsewhere.
Dr. Dobromir Kamburov, COO of Leverage Shares commented on the AUM growth:
“While the growth of self-guided investing has been phenomenal, investor appetite for concentrated exposure has swelled, particularly during and post-pandemic.
Our products enable investors across the UK and EU to make directional trades and express their convictions. Through their ETP structure, unlike buying stocks through an exchange, investors can take a short or long view on a company without risking losing more money than they invest. Furthermore, gains can far exceed any hike in a company’s share price if they choose to leverage upwards.
The tracker ETPs we recently launched, a first of their kind, extend the use of the ETP framework and liberalize access to fractional trading for all investors.”
“We look forward to rolling out further innovative products in the coming months.”
