A leverage certificate is a certificate issued by a bank or financial institution. The leverage certificate reflects the change in the value of the underlying assets with leverage. The underlying asset can be, for example, a share, a bond, a commodity, a currency or a combination of different underlying assets. Leverage certificates usually have a long maturity with constant leverage that is rebalanced on a daily basis. Leverage certificates give the possibility of returns in rising markets (referred to as Bull) and falling market (referred to as Bear).
