Long Short ETFs


Most of these ETFS tend to invest by holding both long and short positions across various asset classes and market cap sizes. These ETFs can be market neutral, thereby equally splitting exposure between long and short positions. For the most part, these ETFs offer lower than usual volatility as it pertains to equity-focused ETFs in general. We therefore see the category as one suited for conservative investors.
