Leveraged index investments, including index futures, options, and ETFs, are one of the fastest growing products in finance, as both retail and institutional investors are attracted to their long-term returns and capital efficiency. With Enhanced Indexing Strategies, author Tristan Yates reveals how you can create and build high-performance indexing strategies using derivatives that can potentially generate much higher returns than conventional index investing. In addition, Enhanced Indexing Strategies introduces six innovative long-term indexing strategies using futures and options, each with its own advantages and applications.

Index funds are among the highest performing and most reliable investments available in the marketplace. Over the past several years, literally hundreds of index-related products have been introduced to the marketplace, most designed to provide investorswith the capability to mix and match different funds in order to build custom portfolios. At the same time, leveraged investment products for the retail investor - which use borrowed capital to increase the returns within the structure of a passive investment strategy - are also one of the fastest growing products in the financial world. In Enhanced Indexing Strategies, Tristan Yates shows how to successfully combine these products using leveraged indexing to deliver better risk-adjusted returns than conventional approaches.

Book News
Yates, a noted industry expert on leveraged EFTs and global index investing, offers this tutorial on index funds and shows experienced investors how to take advantage of one of the most reliable financial products in the marketplace. The author describes how leveraged investments are sound since they are based on predictable long-term performance and allow investors to borrow against returns at low interest rates. The use of option positions to capitalize on pricing trends is the author's unique approach to higher returns, and differs considerable from similar financial guides that stress the tracking of short-term market trends.
