Leverage Shares has launched a range of exchange-traded products (ETPs) allowing investors to buy short and leveraged Treasury bonds.

Listed on the London Stock Exchange, the three ETPs will offer -5x and 5x positions on 7-10 year US Treasury bonds and 20+ year US Treasury bonds, as well as Treasury Inflation Protection Securities (TIPS).

All three ETFs will carry a total expense ratio (TER) of 0.75%.

The short and leveraged fixed income products were part of a wider launch which also included -3x and 3x single-stock ETPs comprising of Ferrari, Exxon and Coinbase with TERs of 0.75%.

Several broader market ETPs were also launched, including the LS Short Volatility Long Tech ETP (SVLT) and the LS FAANG+ ETP (FAAN) with TERs of 1% and 0.35%, respectively.

The firm said FAAN was launched in a bid to create a “pure play” basket of securities targeting US tech leaders while “eliminating fillers common with UCITS ETF”.

Meanwhile, SVLT is an actively-managed strategy designed to capitalise on the contango of the volatility curve – where the futures prices are higher than the spot price – while managing volatility spikes.

Leverage Shares also unveiled a -3x and 3x India equities ETP with a TER of 0.75%.

Oktay Kavrak, director of product strategy at Leverage Shares, said: “We are proud to gear up sophisticated investors with the tools necessary to navigate the current volatility in interest rates and inflation expectations.

“By adding short and leveraged fixed income ETPs, our first pure-play basket and more single names to our line-up of over 170 products in London.”

It is one of the biggest launches by Leverage Shares since it unveiled 42 short and leverage ETPs last June, marking its entry into the European white labelling space.
