ProShares Offers Two More Ways to Short Treasuries

Reported by Neil Anderson, Managing Editor

As debate about the national debt intensities, fundsters interested in the treasury side of the fixed income business may want to take a look at ProShares' [see profile] newest offerings. Yesterday the leveraged- and inverse-index ETF specialist launched its Short 7-10 Year Treasury and UltraShort 3-7 Year Treasury ETFs.

The new ETFs aren't ProShares' first foray into inverse Treasury returns territory. The firm already offers the Short 20+ Year Treasury, UltraShort 20+ Year Treasury and UltraShort 7-10 Year Treasury ETFs, as well as the UltraShort TIPS ETF.

"Our lineup of inverse bond ETFs has been extremely popular, garnering more than $7 billion of assets since launching less than three years ago," stated ProShare Advisors chairman and CEO Michael Sapir. "We are pleased to add two additional ETFs to the set of tools available to investors concerned about a possible pullback in bonds."

The new UltraShort 3-7 Treasury ETF offers twice the inverse of the performance of the Barclays Capital U.S. 3-7 Year Treasury Bond Index for 95 basis points [see prospectus], and the new Short 7-10 Year Treasury ETF offers the inverse of the performance of the Barclays Capital U.S. 7-10 Year Treasury Bond Index, also for 95 bps [see prospectus]. CIO Todd Johnson, portfolio management director Howard Rubin and portfolio manager Michelle Liu PM both new ETFs.

SEI distributes the new UltraShort ETF and SB Investments distributes the new Short ETF.
