plans to shutter 12 of its 14 leveraged and inverse ETFs next month. The funds headed for liquidation have $129 million of assets,
representing less than two percent of Rydex/SGI's total $7 billion in ETF assets.
The decision comes as Rydex/SGI is in the process of being acquired by Guggenheim Partners as part of a broader deal.

including new product development," he added.
Rydex/SGI's rivals in the leveraged and inverse ETF space include ProShares and Direxion.
