WisdomTree lists 18 ETPs on London Stock Exchange

WisdomTree lists 18 ETPs on London Stock Exchange

WisdomTree has lised a range of short and leveraged exchange traded products (ETPs) on the London Stock Exchange covering equity, fixed income and commodity benchmarks.

The listings, denominated in sterling, cover Eurozone equities with 3x leveraged and 3x short on the Euro Stoxx 50 and FTSE MIB, and sector exposure on the Euro Stoxx Banks sector index.

The Boost FTSE MIB Banks ETP provides unleveraged exposure to Italian banks, while US equities can be accessed tactically through 3x leveraged and 3x short ETPs on the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq 100.

Fixed income coverage is provided with the listing of 3x long and short ETPs providing exposure to 10 year bunds and 10 year BTPs and 3x long ETPs on a 10 year US Treasuries exposure.

In the commodity space, the existing energy complex is complemented with the addition of 3x leveraged and 3x short ETPs on natural gas.

WisdomTree already had 68 existing ETPs under its Boost product range.

Jose Poncela, head of exchange traded notes at WisdomTree, said: ‘Over the past year, tactical positioning and hedging has represented the prime use of Boost ETPs.

‘These new listings in sterling will allow UK investors to focus on managing the significant upcoming volatility that we expect from eurozone elections, Brexit and the Euro.

‘Managing US equity market exposure remains a key area for investors given the high weight in global benchmarks.’
