the effects of compounding and rebalancing
The Effects of Compounding and Rebalancing
  • HBP ETFs offer 200% exposure with limited risk
  • Daily rebalancing ensures that the notional exposure is equal to 2x the net assets of the fund at the end of each day
  • This process limits the investors’ risk to their capital invested.
  • In a trending market, “profits” increase exposure, “losses” reduce exposure resulting in a convex return pattern

the effects of volatility on performance
The effects of volatility on performance:
  • The greater the volatility, the greater the deviation from 2x the period return of the underlying benchmark (no rebalancing).

hbp rebalancing tool
HBP Rebalancing Tool:
  • If an investor would like to minimize the effects of compounding and have their investment track more closely to 2x/-2x the PERIOD return of the underlying benchmark the investor should rebalance their holdings.
  • More frequent rebalancing will result in period investment returns more closely matching 2x/-2x the benchmark.
  • Rebalancing consideration is more important if volatility in the underlying index is higher and anticipated hold period is longer.

Horizons BetaPro Commodity ETFs:

  • The initial HBP Commodity ETFs track:
    • NYMEX Crude Oil
    • NYMEX Natural Gas
    • COMEX Gold Bullion
    • DJ-AIG Grains Sub-IndexSM (soybeans, corn and wheat)
  • All HBP Commodity ETFs reference the nearby future contract of each of the respective commodities.
  • All existing US dollar exposure is hedged back to Canadian dollars.
  • None of the HBP Commodity ETFs hold the physical commodity as in most cases storage is not economical or operationally fluid enough to offer small unitized exposure.
