RUSS Factset Analytics Insight
RUSS is a one-day aggressive bet against the movement of Russian equities. RUSS attempts to provide -3x daily exposure to a broad and comprehensive underlying index that includes Russian companies domiciled and traded inside and outside of Russia. That means it's a heavy bet against the energy sector in particular, which dominates the Russian market. RUSS is meant to be a short-term trading vehicle, since the daily reset of triple negative exposure could lead to significant deviations from its targeted multiple if held over longer periods. As a trading vehicle, RUSS works well, boasting strong daily volume and reasonable spreads. While its expense ratio is high, it's not buy-and-hold investment and most investors will see their costs centered on trading rather than the expense ratio.
