Leveraged exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and exchange-traded notes (ETNs) have only been around since 1993, but interest in them received a big boost from the prolonged bull market. These investment vehicles are not for amateur investors, but for those considering taking the plunge, below is a comprehensive list of ETFs and ETNs available.

Defining a Leveraged ETF and ETN

A leveraged ETF is designed to mirror an index such as the S&P 500, 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 2–3x ratio. In other words, 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 ETN is issued as a senior debt note, not a stake in an underlying commodity, and like bonds, they are unsecured debt.

Leveraged index ETFs are often marketed as bull or bear funds. For example, a leveraged bull ETF 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.
