What is a Daily Leverage Certificate (DLC)?

Daily Leverage Certificates (DLC) are exchange-traded financial products that enable investors to take a leveraged exposure to an Underlying Asset, such as an equity index or a single stock (Full list of DLCs). Daily Leverage Certificates replicate the performance of an Underlying Asset versus its previous day closing level, with a fixed leverage factor.

There are two types of Daily Leverage Certificates – Daily Long and Daily Short which enable investors to take a long or short exposure to an Underlying Asset.

Getting Started: what can you do with a DLC?

Long DLCs allow you to generate leveraged gains when the Underlying Asset goes up. On the other hand, Short DLCs increase in value when the Underlying Asset goes down, allowing investors to achieve positive and leveraged gains during market downturn.

Example: 5x Long DBS 

5x Long DBS is at S$2. Buy 500 shares of this DLC with S$1000 when DBS is at S$25.

DBS goes up from S$25 to S$25.5, i.e. up 2%.

5x Long DBS will go up from S$2 to S$2.2, i.e. up by 2% x 5 = 10% compared to the previous day close.

Example: 5x Short Tencent 

5x Short Tencent is at S$1. Buy 1,000 shares of this DLC with S$1,000 when Tencent is at HK$300.

Tencent goes up from HK$300 to HK$309, i.e. up by 3%.

5x Short DLC will go down from S$1 to $0.85, i.e. down by 3% x 5 = 15% compared to the previous day close.

How to identify a DLC?

For example, a 5x DLC with DBS as an underlying would be known as DLC SG5xLong DBS, with the following ticker DOXW.

1 key thing you can learn from legendary hedge fund manager, Ray Dalio

1 key thing you can learn from legendary hedge fund manager, Ray Dalio

You probably already know who Warren Buffett is. But have you ever wondered who’s in the same league as the legendary value investor himself?

A man called Ray Dalio.

If you’ve been in the investing game long enough, his name would definitely ring some bells.

ray dalio

Ray Dalio is the founder and co-CIO of Bridgewater Associates. He founded Bridgewater out of his apartment in 1975.

Bridgewater is now the world’s largest hedge fund, with about $150 billion in assets under management.

There’s definitely more than just the size of the fund to be amazed over.

Bridgewater posted returns for 2018 that not only outperformed benchmark indexes for various asset classes, but also many of its peers in the hedge fund industry.

The firm’s flagship Pure Alpha fund finished 2018 with a return of 14.6%, net of fees.

In comparison, the S&P 500 index was -4.38% for 2018 and Warren Buffett himself is known to publicly endorse index funds.

Now, the question we should be asking ourselves is: what gives funds like Bridgewater the edge and ability to outperform the Market, even when times are bad?

What is this company, what exactly does it do and what are the returns like?
