The ETF Securities Ultra Long Nasdaq 100 Hedge Fund (ASX: LNAS) ETF is an ETF designed to provide amplified or ‘geared’ exposure to the popular NASDAQ 100 stock market index.
LNAS is an hedge fund ETF designed for making short-term trades on the direction of the NASDAQ 100 index. It’s effectively an index fund that adds leverage or ‘gearing’ so that a 1% rise in the NASDAQ 100 index causes a 2% to 2.75% rise in the LNAS ETF (less fees and costs). It can also go the opposite direction and result in larger losses.
The LNAS ETF could be used by investors who are seeking to add gearing to their portfolio and are willing to accept the higher risks associated with that. There are particular risks associated with geared ETFs that your financial adviser can (and should) explain to you before investing.
The following warnings are applied by our team, based on quantitative metrics and our internal methodology. These risks are not exhaustive and therefore they should not be relied upon. Always read the PDS of the function and speak to your financial adviser before acting on this information.
