ProShares Launches First ETFs Providing Magnified Exposure To Europe, Pacific Ex-Japan, Brazil And Mexico

ProShares, the leading manager of leveraged and inverse ETFs, 1 announced today that it is launching the first ETFs in the United States designed to provide magnified exposure to indexes covering Europe, Pacific ex-Japan, Brazil and Mexico. The four ETFs, which seek 200% of the daily return of their respective indexes, before fees and expenses, will be listed on NYSE Arca today.

The new ETFs complement existing ProShares ETFs that provide inverse exposure to the four international indexes. With today’s launch, ProShares now offers 19 leveraged and inverse ETFs benchmarked to a wide variety of international regions and countries.

“The ETFs we’re launching today offer U.S. investors new ways to obtain magnified exposure to these widely followed regions and countries,” said Michael L. Sapir, Chairman and CEO of ProShare Advisors LLC, ProShares’ investment advisor. “We are pleased to provide investors with valuable tools to act on their views.”

About ProShares

ProShares is part of ProFunds Group, the leader in leveraged and inverse funds. 1 ProShares introduced the first leveraged and inverse ETFs in the U.S. in 2006. Since 1997, ProFunds mutual funds have provided investors with access to sophisticated investment strategies.

Each Short or Ultra ProShares ETF and leveraged or inverse ProFund seeks a return that is a multiple or inverse multiple (e.g., -200%) of the return of an index or other benchmark (target) for a single day , before fees and expenses. Due to the compounding of daily returns, Short or Ultra 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.
