Leveraged exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and exchange-traded notes (ETNs) have only been around since 1993, but interest in them got a big boost from the prolonged bull market. It should be noted that these are not investment vehicles for the faint of heart. For those considering taking the plunge, there's an A-to-Z list of available ETFs and ETNs below.

But first, a few words of definition:

  • A leveraged exchange-traded fund (ETF) is designed to mirror an index such as the S&P500, but the fund uses financial derivatives and debt to amplify the returns of that underlying index. The funds aim to keep a constant amount of leverage during the investment time frame, typically a 2x or 3x ratio. So, a leveraged 2x ETF will maintain a $2 exposure to the index for every $1 of investor capital, in hopes of getting twice the return of investors in the underlying index.
  • An exchange-traded note (ETN) is issued as a senior debt note, not a stake in an underlying commodity. Like bonds, they are unsecured debt.

    Leveraged index ETFs are often marketed as bull or bear funds. For example, a leveraged bull ETF fund might attempt to achieve daily returns that are 2x or 3x more pronounced than the Dow Jones Industrial Average or the S&P 500. As with any leveraged ETF, you need to know that the targeted leveraged return is on the ​daily performance, not the annual return.
