Why We’re Different


Access

We provide experienced traders with magnified exposure, daily investment objectives, and transparency when buying shares on leverage.

Execution

Our innovative Exchange Traded Products (ETPs) enable investors to access leveraged exposures to individual stocks. Investors can use these ETPs to execute tactical trades, based on their conviction and knowledge.

Simplification

Some leveraged ETPs rely on over-the-counter (OTC) swaps and other derivatives to achieve leveraged exposure, which can open the ETP to credit risk. This means that if the counterparty defaults, the ETP may not generate its expected returns. Leverage Shares ETPs purchase the underlying stocks directly, thereby helping reduce credit risk (click here for full risk warnings).
