BME Expands Its IBEX 35® Index Family

05/11/2012

BME expands its IBEX 35® index family with three new tradable indices, all of which are based on the IBEX 35®. The new indices, called IBEX 35® TRIPLE LEVERAGE NET, IBEX 35® X5 LEVERAGE NET and IBEX 35® X5 SHORT will start to be calculated and disseminated in real time from November 22nd.

The IBEX 35® TRIPLE LEVERAGE NET, which offers triple exposure to the daily return on the IBEX 35® NET RETURN, through the investment of an initial capital plus an equivalent loaned capital. A positive daily return on the IBEX35® NET RETURN yields an also positive return, but triple that amount for the IBEX 35® TRIPLE LEVERAGE NET and vice versa, if we refer to a daily calculation basis.

The IBEX 35® X5 LEVERAGE NET which offers quintuple exposure to the daily return on the IBEX 35® NET RETURN through the investment of an initial capital plus an equivalent loaned capital. A positive daily return on the IBEX 35® NET RETURN yields a positive return, but quintuple that amount for the IBEX 35® DOUBLE LEVERAGE NET and vice versa, if we refer to a daily calculation basis.

The IBEX 35® X5 SHORT would be linked to a quintuple performance of the IBEX 35® TOTAL RETURN in the opposite direction, that is, a negative yield of the IBEX 35 TOTAL RETURN returns a quintuple positive yield for the IBEX 35® X5 SHORT and vice versa, if we refer to a daily calculation basis.

These new indices are intended to serve as underlying assets for financial products, such as warrants, certificates, Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs). These new indices provide investors with a broad range of investment strategies.
