Advisor Perspectives | April 11, 2022
In a Q&A with Advisor Perspectives’ Robert Huebscher, ProShares Global Investment Strategist Simeon Hyman discusses the possibility of more interest rate hikes and continued rising inflation. Hyman discusses ProShares Equities for Rising Rates ETF (EQRR), which is built on a strategy specifically designed to provide relative outperformance during periods when interest rates increase. Hyman says, “Rising rates are a direct shot at your bond portfolio. But there’s a real opportunity to address your equities and position them optimally for a rising rate environment.”

The performance quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Market price returns are based upon the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 p.m. ET (when NAV is normally determined for most funds) and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. Your brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. For standardized returns and performance data current to the most recent month end, see Performance.
