ProShares Launches First Volatility ETFs

Each leveraged or inverse ProShares ETF seeks a return that is either 300%, 200%, -100%, -200% or -300% of the return of an index or other benchmark (target) for a single day . Due to the compounding of daily returns, ProShares’ 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 their ProShares holdings consistent with their strategies, as frequently as daily. For more on correlation, leverage and other risks, please read the prospectus.

These ETFs are not regulated under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and are not afforded its protections. Investing in ETFs involves a substantial risk of loss. There is no guarantee any ProShares ETF will achieve its investment objective. These ETFs invest in futures. VIX futures are among the most volatile futures contracts. A fund’s exposure to its index may subject that fund to greater volatility than investments in traditional securities, which may adversely affect an investor’s investment in that fund. Unlike conventional stock-based indexes, it is not expected that the indexes will generally rise over time, therefore investors should not expect the funds to appreciate in value over extended periods of time. These ETFs are not suitable for all investors.
