Leveraged and inverse ETFs have seen explosive growth since their introduction in 2006, as knowledgeable investors found them useful for implementing a variety of strategies. With the recent market turmoil these tools have also generated some controversy about how they fit into an overall portfolio strategy. To get a more complete understanding of leveraged and inverse funds, financial advisors can register today for an exclusive webcast sponsored by ProFunds Group, the world leader in short and leveraged funds. This webcast will also provide a broader context of the factors driving performance for leveraged and inverse funds over time, as well as potential uses and investment strategies.

Participants will:

  • Learn about factors affecting performance over time
  • Review how rebalancing may help get closer to your goals over time
  • Hear from an advisor about the importance of trading strategies and moving averages
  • Gain insight from an advisor into when to buy, where to place stops, and when to sell

This program has been approved by the CFP Board for 1 CE credit

Most ProShares ETFs and many ProFunds employ leveraged investment techniques that magnify gains and losses and result in greater volatility in value. Each Short or Ultra ProShares ETF and leveraged or inverse ProFund seeks a return that is multiple or inverse multiple (e.g. -200%) of the return of an index or other benchmark (target) for a single day. Due to the compounding of daily returns, ProShares' and leveraged and inverse ProFunds' returns over periods other than one day will likely differ in amount and possibly direction from the target return for the same period. Investors should monitor holdings consistent with their strategies, as frequently as daily. For more on correlation, leverage and other risks, please read the ProShares or ProFunds prospectus.

Carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of ProFunds or ProShares before investing or sending money. This and other information can be found in their prospectuses. Read the prospectuses carefully before investing. For a ProFunds or ProShares prospectus, financial professionals should call 888-776-5717, or visit www.profunds.com or www.proshares.com.
