Decline of the Retail Store ETF  - EMTY Decline of the Retail Store ETF

ProShares Decline of the Retail Store ETF seeks capital appreciation from the decline of bricks-and-mortar retailers through short exposure (-1x) to the Solactive-ProShares Bricks and Mortar Retail Store Index.

  • EMTY is the first ETF specifically designed to benefit from the decline of bricks-and-mortar retailers.
  • Physical retailers are under immense pressure. E-commerce is threatening to take over retail as consumer habits change, shopping moves online, and physical stores struggle to remain viable. With this disruption comes opportunity.
  • The Solactive-ProShares Bricks and Mortar Retail Store Index is the first comprehensive, public securities index composed solely of traditional retailers, and is positioned to potentially become an industry standard for measuring the health of bricks and mortar retailers.

This ProShares ETF seeks a return that is -1x the return of the index (target) for a single day, as measured from one NAV calculation to the next. Due to the compounding of daily returns, the fund’s returns over periods other than one day will likely differ in amount and possibly direction from the target return for the same period. Investors should monitor their holdings consistent with their strategies, as frequently as daily. For more on correlation, leverage and other risks, please read the prospectus.
