How are you safeguarding your bond portfolio?
The yields on the 10- and 30-Year Treasury notes are up significantly since the low we experienced in July 2016, and the Federal Reserve has been raising the Fed Funds Rate again—a trend investors haven’t seen since 2006. When rates increase, bond prices go down.
Rising Rates ProFunds are designed to increase on a day when Treasury prices fall, and vice versa. They can help you hedge your bond portfolios or seek potential profits from Treasury price declines when interest rates increase.
We have two Rising Rates ProFunds available:
- The Rising Rates Opportunity ProFund seeks -1.25x the daily price movement of the most recently issued 30-year Treasury bond, before fees and expenses.
- The Rising Rates Opportunity 10 ProFund seeks -1x the daily price movement of the most recently issued 10-year Treasury note, also before fees and expenses.
