The Units of Samsung HSCEI Daily (2x) Leveraged Product (Stock Code: 07228) (the “Product”) will cease trading on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited from 19 January 2021. Please refer to the “Announcement and Notice of The Proposed Cessation of Trading, Termination, Voluntary Deauthorisation and Delisting and Non-Applicability of Certain Provisions of The Code on Unit Trusts and Mutual Funds” dated 18 December 2020, the subsequent reminder announcements and all other relevant announcements relating to the Product for further details.
This is a leveraged product. It is different from conventional exchange traded funds as it seeks leveraged investment results relative to the Index and only on a Daily basis.
This product is not intended for holding longer than one day as the performance of this product over a longer period may deviate from and be uncorrelated to the leveraged performance of the Index over the period.
This product is designed to be used for short term trading or hedging purposes, and is not intended for long term investment.
This is a complex product. Investors should exercise caution in relation to the product. This product only targets sophisticated trading-oriented investors who understand the potential consequences of seeking Daily leveraged results and the associated risks and constantly monitor the performance of their holdings on a Daily basis.
Samsung HSCEI Daily (2x) Leveraged Product (the “Product”) is a sub-fund of Samsung Leveraged and Inverse Investment Product Series, an umbrella unit trust established under Hong Kong law. Units of the Product (“Units”) are listed on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (the “SEHK”). These Units are traded on the SEHK like listed stocks. It is a futures-based product which invests directly in futures contracts on the Index traded on the Hong Kong Futures Exchange Limited (the “HKFE”) (“HSCEI Futures Contracts”) so as to give the Product twice (2x) the Daily performance of the Index.
Investment always involves risks. Investors should refer to the Prospectus and other offering documents for further details including the risk factors. Investors should not only base on the following information alone to make investment decisions. Please note the relevant information is prepared by Samsung Asset Management (H.K.) Ltd and has not been reviewed by the SFC. If investors are in any doubt, you should consult bank manager, solicitor, accountant or other financial adviser for independent advice. The risks are (included but not limited to):
1. Investment risk
The Product is a derivative product and is not suitable for all investors. There is no guarantee of the repayment of principal. Therefore your investment in the Product may suffer substantial/total losses.
2. Long term holding risks
The Product is not intended for holding longer than one day as the performance of the Product over a period longer than one day will very likely differ in amount and possibly direction from the leveraged performance of the Index over that same period (e.g. the loss may be more than twice the fall in the Index).
The effect of compounding becomes more pronounced on the Product’s performance as the Index experiences volatility. With higher Index volatility, the deviation of the Product’s performance from the leveraged performance of the Index will increase, and the performance of the Product will generally be adversely affected.
As a result of Daily rebalancing, the Index’s volatility and the effects of compounding of each day’s return over time, it is even possible that the Product will lose money over time while the Index’s performance increases or is flat.
3. Leverage risk
The Product will utilise leverage to achieve a Daily return equivalent to twice (2x) the return of the Index. Both gains and losses will be magnified. The risk of loss resulting from an investment in the Product in certain circumstances including a bear market will be substantially more than a fund that does not employ leverage.
4. Rebalancing activities risk
There is no assurance that the Product can rebalance its portfolio on a Daily basis to achieve its investment objective. Market disruption, regulatory restrictions or extreme market volatility may adversely affect the Product’s ability to rebalance its portfolio.
5. Liquidity risk
The rebalancing activities of the Product will typically take place near the end of a Business Day at or around the close of trading of the underlying markets to minimise tracking difference. As a result, the Product may be more exposed to the market conditions during a shorter interval and may be more subject to liquidity risk.
6. Volatility risk
Prices of the Product may be more volatile than conventional ETFs because of using leverage and the Daily rebalancing activities.
7. Intraday investment risk
The Product will normally be rebalanced near the end of a Business Day at or around the close of trading of the underlying markets. As such, return for investors that invest for period less than a full trading day will generally be greater than or less than two times (2x) leveraged investment exposure to the Index, depending upon the movement of the Index from the end of one trading day until the time of purchase.
8. Portfolio turnover risk
Daily rebalancing of Product’s holdings causes a higher level of portfolio transactions than compared to the conventional ETFs. High levels of transactions increase brokerage and other transaction costs.
9. Futures contracts risks
The Product is a futures based product. Investment in futures contracts involves specific risks such as high volatility, leverage, rollover and margin risks. The leverage component of futures contracts can result in a loss significantly greater than the amount invested in the futures contracts by the Product. Exposures to futures contracts may lead to a high risk of significant loss by the Product.
A “roll” occurs when an existing futures contract is about to expire and is replaced with a futures contract representing the same underlying but with a later expiration date. The value of the Product’s portfolio (and so the Net Asset Value per Unit) may be adversely affected by the cost of rolling positions forward (due to the higher price of the futures contract with a later expiration date) as the futures contracts approach expiry.
There may be imperfect correlation between the value of the underlying reference assets and the futures contracts, which may prevent the Product from achieving its investment objective.
10. Concentration and PRC market risk
The Product is subject to concentration risk as a result of tracking the leveraged performance of a single geographical region or country (the PRC including Hong Kong). The value of the Product may be more volatile than that of a fund having a more diverse portfolio of investments.
The Index constituents are companies incorporated in the PRC which are listed on the SEHK and primarily traded in Hong Kong, and have substantial business exposure to the PRC, an emerging Investments of the Product may involve increased risks and special considerations not typically associated with investment in more developed markets, such as liquidity risks, currency risks/control, political and economic uncertainties, legal and taxation risks, settlement risks, custody risk and the likelihood of a high degree of volatility.
11. Holding of HSCEI Futures Contracts restriction in number risk
The positions of futures contracts or stock options contracts held or controlled by the Manager, including positions held for the Manager’s own account or for the funds under its management (such as the Product) but controlled by the Manager, may not in aggregate exceed the relevant maximum under the Securities and Futures (Contracts Limits and Reportable Position) Rules (the “Rules”). Accordingly, if the position held or controlled by the Manager reaches the relevant position limit or if the Net Asset Value of the Product grows significantly, the restrictions under the Rules may prevent creations of Units due to the inability under the Rules of the Product to acquire further HSCEI Futures Contracts. This may cause a divergence between the trading price of a Unit on the SEHK and the Net Asset Value per Unit. The investment exposure could also deviate from the target exposure which adds tracking error to the Product.
12. Distributions risk
Where distributions are distributed out of capital or effectively out of capital, this amounts to a return or withdrawal of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment and may result in an immediate reduction in the Net Asset Value per Unit.
13. Passive investments risks
The Product is not “actively managed” and therefore the Manager will not adopt any temporary defensive position when the Index moves in an unfavourable direction. In such circumstances the Product will also decrease in value.
14. Trading risks
The trading price of the Units on the SEHK is driven by market factors such as the demand and supply of the Units. Therefore, the Units may trade at a substantial premium or discount to the Net Asset Value.
As investors will pay certain charges (e.g. trading fees and brokerage fees) to buy or sell Units on the SEHK, investors may pay more than the Net Asset Value per Unit when buying Units on the SEHK, and may receive less than the Net Asset Value per Unit when selling Units on the SEHK.
15. Trading differences risk
The HKFE and the SEHK have different trading hours. As the HKFE may be open when Units in the Product are not priced, the value of the HSCEI Futures Contracts in the Product’s portfolio may change at times when investors will not be able to purchase or sell the Product’s Units. Difference in trading hours between the HKFE and the SEHK may increase the level of premium/discount of the Unit price to its Net Asset Value.
Trading of the Index constituents closes earlier than trading of HSCEI Futures Contracts, and so there may continue to be price movements for HSCEI Futures Contracts when Index constituents are not trading. There may be imperfect correlation between the value of the Index constituents and HSCEI Futures Contracts, which may prevent the Product from achieving its investment objective.
16. Reliance on market maker risks
Although the Manager will ensure that at least one market maker will maintain a market for the Units and gives not less than 3 months’ notice prior to termination of the market making arrangement, liquidity in the market for the Units may be adversely affected if there is only one market maker for the Units. There is no guarantee that any market making activity will be effective.
17. Tracking error and correlation risks
Fees and expenses of the Product, high portfolio turnover, liquidity of the market and the investment strategy to be adopted by the Manager may result in tracking error and may reduce the correlation between the performance of the Product and the two times (2x) Daily leveraged performance of the Index. The Manager will monitor and seek to manage such risk in minimising tracking error. There can be no assurance of exact or identical replication at any time of the Daily leveraged performance of the Index.
18. Termination risk
The Product may be terminated early under certain circumstances, for example, where there is no market maker, the Index is no longer available for benchmarking or if the size of the Product falls below HKD40 million. Any distribution received by a Unitholder on termination of the Product may be less than the capital initially invested by the Unitholder, resulting in a loss to the Unitholder.

It is important for investors to understand that Leveraged / Inverse products aim to provide returns for a specific time period.
The value of a Leveraged / Inverse products with a daily reset will change by the percentage movement in its benchmark, multiplied by the leverage / inverse factor (2x, -1x), for a given day. At the end of the day, the base value for future returns is “reset” and used as a starting point for the next day’s returns. With Leveraged / Inverse products, daily resets cause a compounding effect, whereby losses and gains from each period affect the base from which the next period’s returns are calculated.
Above is a simple simulator to help investors better understand the returns provided by Leveraged / Inverse products and the impact of the daily reset.
※ The investor is assumed to hold the L/I Product for the entire simulation period. The performance of the L/I Product is calculated based on the L/I Product ‘s NAV. The performance of the L/I Product may not reflect the return that the investor would be able to obtain as it does not capture the premium/ discount of the L/I Product , or the trading costs.
- Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Investors may not get back the full amount invested.
- The performance figures show by how much the product increased or decreased during the calendar year being shown.
- Performance data has been calculated in HKD including ongoing charges and excluding trading costs.
- Where no past performance is shown, there was insufficient data available for that period to provide a useful indication of past performance to investors. If you are in doubt, you should seek professional advice.
- The computation basis of performance of the Product is based on the calendar year end, NAV-To-NAV basis, dividend re-invested.
- Investment involves risks. Please refer to the Prospectus and other offering documents for more information about the Product and the risks details

*a) “Net Distribution Income” means (i) the net investment income (i.e. dividend income and interest income net of fees and expenses) attributable to the relevant unit class and may also include net realized gains (if any) based on unaudited management accounts. However, “net distributable income” cannot include net unrealized gains. (ii) which is not declared and paid as dividends in a period of a financial year can be carried forward as net distributable income for the next period(s) within the same financial year. “Net distributable income” that has been accrued as at the end of a financial year and is declared and paid as dividends at the next distribution date immediately after that financial year end could be treated as “net distributable income” in respect of that financial year. However, “net distributable income” which has been accrued as at the end of a financial year but is not declared and paid as dividends at the next distribution date immediately after that financial year end should be included as “capital” for the next financial year. (iii) where the fund may pay dividend out of gross income while charging / paying all or part of the fund’s fees and expenses to / out of capital, the amount of fees and expenses that has been paid out of capital has to be deducted from the gross investment income in order to come up with the “net distributable income”.
b) The composition of the latest dividends (i.e. relative amounts paid from (i) net distributable income and (ii) capital) for the last 12 months are available from the Manager on request and on http://www.samsungetf.com.hk. The Manager may amend the above dividend policy with respect to payment of fees and/or dividends out of capital subject to the Securities and Futures Commission’s prior approval and by giving not less than one month’s prior notice to investors.
Please note that a positive distribution yield does not imply a positive return nor guarantee of distribution. Investors should not make any investment decision solely based on information contained in the table above. You should read the relevant offering document (including the key facts statement) of the fund for further details including the risk factors.
Important information about Dividend out of capital / effectively out of capital
- The Manager may in its discretion make cash distributions to Unit holders out of capital or out of gross income (while charging/paying all or part of the Product’s fees and expenses to/out of the capital of the Product) resulting in an increase in distributable income for the payment of distributions which is in effect a payment of distributions out of capital.
- Payment of distributions out of capital or effectively out of capital amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Any distributions involving payment out of or effectively out of the Product’s capital may result in an immediate reduction of the Net Asset Value per Unit.
