Route 66

September 13, 2006

In the largest single ETF filing ever, ProShares details plans for sixty-six leveraged, short and short-leveraged ETFs.

Whoa Nelly.

In the largest single exchange-traded fund (ETF) filing ever, ProShares has petitioned the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for the right to launch sixty-six - yes, 66 - leveraged, short and short-leveraged ETFs. The new funds track 22 indexes in three broad buckets - stand alone indexes, style indexes and sector indexes. 

As with the 12 existing ProShares ETFs, which track the S&P 500, S&P MidCap 400, Dow Jones Industrial Average and Nasdaq-100 - there will three ProShares tied to each index: one providing 2X long leveraged exposure, one providing short exposure and one providing 2X short-leveraged exposure.

With the new filings, it is clear that ProShares aims to offer a complete line-up of funds to investors.
