Risky Business: Investors Take to Leveraged, Inverse ETFs…Big Time

Leveraged and inverse exchange-traded products are attracting more and more assets. Independent research firm ETFGI's data show that assets in these vehicles have risen more than 14% year-to-date through the end of September to $77.1 billion.

There are 834 exchange-traded products from 59 providers on 19 exchanges in 16 countries. Of those, roughly half or 419 were leveraged, 228 were inverse, and 187 were leveraged inverse ETPs. Leveraged and inverse ETPs collected $4.7 billion year-to-date in net flows. Inverse products' net flows of $1.9 billion and leveraged inverse products' $3.8 billion offset outflows of $1 billion in regular leveraged ETPs.
