ProShares has launched its first exchange-traded fund that provides an inverse exposure to U.S. Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS). The ProShares UltraShort TIPS aims to provide -2x of the daily return of the Barclays Capital U.S. Treasury Inflation Protected SecuritiesIndex, before fees, expenses and interest income.
The new portfolio, listed on the NYSE Arca, is a tool for investors considering hedging against or seeking to benefit from declines in TIPS prices. It also expands the ProShares lineup of geared Treasury ETFs to six.
